This is the first time I have seen an infographic that covers this subject, and I’ve seen a few! And, I must say that is is fascinating. I love sociology and to see a development of how social work as evolved is far more interesting than the majority of subjects I encounter.
Social work isn’t my first choice for a career, but for many, this is a rewarding and fulfilling role that helps those most at need in society. What is staggering is that social work only came about in 1819. We complain about life being difficult today, but in comparison to what others had to suffer before we had welfare systems to help the most vulnerable, it was a much more bleak picture.
History of Social Work Timeline infographic covers the evolution of social work from its founding in 1819 in Glasgow and key moments to 1969 when mebership to the NASW is opened to social workers.
