U21 & ASSWA Symposium – Community Development in Social Work
Community development or community work has been a method of social work for over 100 years yet is all-too-often neglected in favour of clinical or statutory work. Many would argue, however, that community development is ideally suited to achieving the mission of the social work profession, as summarised by the global definition of social work. This community development in social work symposium will therefore address some of the cutting edges of community work in Africa, and of relevance to other parts of the world, concerning leadership of community development, professionalisation of community work, social action and economic empowerment through community development.
