In the first two chapters we have seen how the role of social workers has developed over time. This chapter is concerned with how the knowledge and skills that you need as a social worker have also extensively changed over the years as the social, political and economic context within which social work operates has also been subject to almost continuous change. This has meant that, in turn, the models or tools that social workers use in their interventions with service users and families have been subject to evaluation as part of this process. Social workers face considerable challenges at this time and it is more important than ever to have a range of interventions and skills to use within social work practice.
