In this chapter, we consider the dynamic model of social work practice, which seeks to illuminate the processes through which our professional purpose is constructed in social work practice. The components of the model include institutional contexts, professional practice base, service users’ needs and expectations, and our own emerging practice framework. First, we consider how the dynamic model fits with the contextual approach to practice introduced in Chapter 1. We then consider each component of the model. We go on to discuss three approaches to theory use and how the dynamic model can inform our use of theory in practice.
