Social work in its theoretical aspect is based on the knowledge of human relations with regard to the solutions of psycho- social problems. In its applied aspect, social work is a professional service based on the scientific methods and skills. It seeks to approach the social world scientifically. In the field of social sciences, social work occupies a very important place.
In its present form, social work is a professional service which assists individuals, groups, and communities. On the other hand, it attempts to help the individuals, the social milieu and at the same time it removes the barriers which obstruct the people from achieving the best which they are capable of.
Social work derives its inspiration from the humanitarian philosophy. It seeks happiness and prosperity for the individuals, group and community.
