Social workers frequently encounter people newly arrived in Australia. Whether working at individual, group or community levels, the profession is engaged with migrants, refugees and asylum seekers from a breadth of countries and ethnicities. This occurs whether they are employed in mainstream or specialist organisations. During their social work education, students are presented with theoretical constructs that advance their knowledge base to equip them to work in diverse and changing situations. An increasing number of people who are themselves migrants, are employed in social work positions, which facilitates communication, cultural understandings and overcomes language barriers.
