SOCW 211 Introduction to Social Work

Social work practice that focuses both on private troubles and public issues

Where do social workers work?

Social workers are found in many settings including schools, family and child services, community care, non-government welfare agencies, correctional services, public welfare, private practice, drug and alcohol rehabilitation, general and psychiatric hospitals, agency administration, federal, provincial, and municipal government departments, social policy, planning and research, and charity and religious organizations.

Social workers spend most of their time in an office or residential facility but they may travel locally to visit clients or meet with service providers.
