1. Herman Wetherington


    Sociologists study social groups, cultures, societies, etc.

    Social workers (and here I mean those who have obtained BSW, MSW or similar accredited degrees) help people, usually individuals or families, find solutions to the challenges they face.

    Social workers are informed by the work of sociologists and other disciplines. They take advantage of that information both in providing assistance and in advocating systemic changes to alleviate problems globally.

  2. Could i please be clarified about the difference between the role of social workers and the role of sociologists?

  3. I was looking for information regarding the 2004 IDEA “Response to Intervention” law and the role that school social workers will play. There has been a lot of talk about more psychologist involement and less social worker involvement.
