Social Work is an applied field, offering a scientifically-grounded, value-based approach to human services. Social workers work in a variety of settings, including schools, hospitals, mental health, juvenile justice, and perform a variety of tasks such as case management, client advocacy, and counseling. The profession of social work extends back to the late 19th Century, when various individuals and groups began applying a unique perspective and orientation to address the social problems of the time.
