Social work is a broad term for fields in which professionals help people cope with issues that disrupt their everyday lives.
Social workers are typically defined by a specific field – they can work with children and schools, medical or public health issues, or mental health and substance abuse issues. They may offer advising services, provide individual or group therapy, or help a client find help with housing, food or safety. A social worker may serve as a link between the client and another organization such as a school, place of employment or government agency.
