This is a two-part question:
Please no direct quotes:
- An analysis of historical divides (such as the schism between Jane Addams and Mary Richmond) and historical influences on current social work practice with respect to policy advocacy and action. Do such schisms exist in contemporary social work? If you think these divides exist, how do they prevent social workers from fulfilling their ethical obligation(s)? Are they important differentiations?
- How to address these schisms, both historical situations and current but yet unidentified ones. Does social action need to be separate from social work practice?
