Aimée’s Answer

As Mohammed stated there's a lot of aspects to the field. There are more political aspects where a social worker may work for an advocacy center, there are many who are mental health therapists, others working in social policy, and various case management services.

Ethically we have a duty to value relationships with others, with special considerations towards oppressed and vulnerable populations. There are often courses while in school that cover racism and oppression because of the important role social justice and being respectful and mindful of various cultural practices plays in social work practice.

Simeon’s Answer

Social work is a very open ended field with people working with others on things from nutrition to housing or employment. Some social workers assist with all of these and more. They often have a "case load" or group of families/individuals that they've been assigned to assist improve their situation. Some social workers work out of a hospital, office, or other building, while other social workers go to the actual homes and workplaces of the people they are assisting.
