Social Work

Social Work

Social work has many faces and shapes- its common values involve an empathic, safe and welcoming, structured interaction between a trained professional and individuals facing challenges in their lives, and hoping to make meaningful change. Social workers share an authentic and strong commitment to supporting people who experience difficult circumstances, moments and transitions.

From individuals and families to organizations and communities, social workers collaborate with their clients to address challenges through a process of assessment, diagnosis, treatment and evaluation. Registered social workers have specialized university education and must participate in continued professional learning and skills development to fulfil the requirements of their professional regulatory body, the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers”. In practice, social workers adapt to their clients’ expressed needs and priorities, and accompany, advise and encourage them in
their individual journeys.
