Social work education as a concept refers to the integration of the core knowledge, values, and critical skills and competencies that social workers must acquire for competent practice in their fields of work. It is an emerging professional area in India and faces unique challenges such as the absence of local orientation and lack of synchronization between classroom learning and field realities.

This edited book seeks to present perspectives on various areas of social work education from highly experienced educators in Indian universities as well as from outside India. Social Work Education: Indigenous Perspectives exhaustively discusses the major indigenous models, innovative practices and techniques of practice-based discourse in social work. It will help young social workers acquire deep knowledge and understanding of the different practice domains and thematic aspects of social work. This will, in turn, enable them to practice efficiently in today’s emerging social and cultural context.
