What Social Workers Do
NBASW members work in government agencies, First Nation communities, academic institutions, non-profit organizations and in private and for-profit practices. Social workers are committed to seeing the values of acceptance, self-determination and respect for individuality flourish in society. Social workers are dedicated to the welfare and wellness of individuals and the achievement of social justice for all. Social workers believe in the obligation of all people, individually and collectively, to contribute to the provision of resources, services and opportunities for the overall benefit of humanity.
To that end, social workers practise in a variety of fields for individuals with a wide variety of needs.
Some examples of these fields include:
- Case Management
- Child, Youth and Family services
- Community Development
- Group Therapy
- Mental Health
- Social Assistance
- Social Policy
- Social Work Education
- Vocational Assistance
