Social workers are concerned with helping the poor and enabling people to use social and community resources. However, social work has abandoned its mission to help the poor and oppressed and to build communality. Instead, many social workers are devoting themselves to careers in psychotherapy. Social work schools should make more effort to promote social awareness as part of the curriculum. This article gives an account of an experimental program aimed at incorporating the social role of the social worker into the second-year methods of social work intervention courses.
