Social Work and the Behavioral and Social Sciences: Reflections on Developments

By Herman D. Stein

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1964

The continued development of applied social work is dependent on social workers' familiarity with up-to-date research from the behavioral and social sciences. Although there is more theory than could ever be applied in practice, constant learning is vital to improved quality of achievement and competence. Among the behavioral and social sciences, social workers will find most relevant theories of role, stratification, culture, deviance, organization, social change, and power. The author briefly explores each of these areas and summarizes their applicability to social work, ultimately demonstrating the essential link between theory and practice.
