The author explores the question of specialization in social work -- whether the field ought to retain its structure of specializing agencies (family service agencies, children's service agencies, elder care facilities, vocational services agencies, etc.) or whether it ought to move towards generalized and generic conceptions of case work. While there are continuities between all people's social problems, the author concludes that differences in intake, and in clients' perceptions and conceptions of what it means to seek service, make it reasonable to continue to offer distinct channels for social work service at the present time.
