School social work: An emerging area of professional social work
Dr. Chhabi Kumar
School Social Work is emerging as an essential part of Professional Social Work. School life is considered as the most vital part during the course of an individual’s development. The current changing social and economic scenario has brought several challenges to the social and cultural situation of an individual, often leading to maladjustment of individuals within their socio-cultural settings. Children are often the most vulnerable in such conditions which hamper their overall growth, academic performance and wellbeing. In such a situation school social workers are sometimes the only professionals who provide their services to reintegrate them with the mainstream and improve their academic performance. The following paper brings out the importance of school social work as a specialised area of theory and practice and the services that they provide to the society.
