Social workers have the power to change our world, and it’s the analysis, counseling and support that the practice of social work provides for individuals, families and communities, that is the catalyst for this change. The positive outcomes and transformative influence produced by social work practice is felt far beyond the immediate reach of an individual social worker, touching a multitude of lives and affecting our complex global community in countless ways.
