Welfare of people, Dana, charity is the words which depict the previous concept of social work. But new concept of professional social work and social workers changed the scenario. And also the way of thinking of people towards this profession. At present social work study covers in its syllabus of all the aspects of society. If we coin the name multidimensional core, than it will also do the justice with it because it’s based on the holistic approach of society covering the area of urban and rural development, family and child welfare, medical and psychiatrist and also the personnel and industrial management. By this it cover the more than half aspects of the society. Yes I said half of the because still it is the matter of tantrum that we can’t measure or weight the social work. So which we cannot be measure or proof in the laboratory than how it would be a science? And because of this mind set we always take the social work studies and its area at the second level. Even though in this advanced era, students give their predilections to the hi-tech and scientific studies which they can proof in the laboratories and able to measure and record it.
Well in spite of this on the other side social work study is an inevitable area of higher studies but here is the only peculiarity occur on the ground of mind set. This is complicated to modify or alter.
Here in this article my only notion is that it is not always necessary to measure or weight the good things which we cannot and which are really acceptable and good for the human being and for in other aspects also.
Profession of social work is not easy task to tackle, first of all it catches the attention of individual that how social work can be a profession? As per my aspect it will be the first and foremost question which rises in the mind of our hoi-polloi? Professional social workers have to work in the multidimensional areas without any prejudices and biases? Now of course again after this statement question occur what is the need of professional social worker? What are the needs of it? And social work is a thing which any one can join and do by their own and deliberately and voluntarily so what are the needs of professionalist in it? These are some general question which rose in the ‘human brain’, and it is normal condition to arise.
If we describe it in a general speaking term, than social work is nothing but it is the one way to help the people to make help themselves.
It is the general criteria of social work by the social scientist. And when we pitch on the word ‘professional’, than it added a tinge, in the statement ‘professional social work’ and professional social workers’, word professional in itself consist the professionalism. Now professionalism here stand for perfection in the arena and a professional of that area should be well acquainted with the tool and technique of his /her area of working.
Because those who are the professional and withhold the proficiency in their arena of work naturally are able to perform better instead of those who are the volunteer and providing their services in a form of charity or Dana. And in my notion this is the simple and to the point answer of hundreds of arising questions.
