Throughout this book we have argued that social work — being a profession concerned with the enhancement of human potential — needs to consider that which determines the quality of our humanness, the body. Thinking about the body, or the human as a biological organism, helps us better understand what it means to be an emotional, thinking being that is in constant interaction with its environment. Contemplation of how we use and relate to our bodies assists our understanding of how we form and modify our identities, or senses of self.
