Abstract

This is the starting point: at this moment, somewhere in the world, ‘clients’ are struggling into an office to meet with a ‘social worker’. Or perhaps the social worker is visiting the client’s home, or is working with clients in groups, in residential or day-care settings, or in some form of community work. In some, but not all societies, this something called ‘social work’ goes on. It is widely enough spread for international associations of social workers and a shared language and literature of social work to exist.
