An Introduction to social work, examines the three additional disciplines, i.e., addictions, human growth and development and justice studies, from a social work perspective. The video focuses on the theory that recovery from poverty and/or physical, psychological or spiritual illness requires a holistic approach. And, if a social services professional is to successfully identify and engage the client in a process that can lead to healing and wholeness, he/she must focus on, and treat, the intellectual, emotional, physical, environmental and spiritual realms. The video offers the viewer a multifaceted look at the topics by presenting live-action classroom dialogs with practitioners in criminal justice, addictions, and social work; students; and subject matter experts.
