Welfare State Fiscal Welfare
Social Welfare Fiscal Welfare:
Benefits the capitalist class operating mainly through the Income tax Act
Benefits are distributed through the workplace like pensions, health benefits, etc.
Benefits of providing a safe haven for those who cannot meet their basic needs
Most stereotypical welfare class judged by society
Poses a stigma onto those who rely on the system SOCIAL WORK IN CRISIS
The current restructuring of the welfare state means the context for social work practice is changing. Jim Ife on the 4 components defining this context:
Competencies As the culture fabric of our world changes so do the social needs of people. A reduction in resources available for SSW's places demands on social workers to provide “more for less”. This excess social clean-up means more professionals in the Social Work field are reporting burn-out and stress and the “DEPROFESSIONALIZATION OF SOCIAL WORK or PROLETARIANIZATION OF SOCIAL WORK”. “Faced with this state of affairs and these key issues—economic retrogression, governmental debilitation, and the economic/social development conflict—what is the role of the social work profession and what should be its strategies for dealing with the issues?”
-President of the International Federation of Social Workers (over twenty years ago) Reformulation of Social Work Theory:
1.) Explication of Social Work’s ideology as a necessary step in building knowledge.
2.) Knowledge about the nature and role of the state and social work’s relation to it.
3.) Transformational knowledge of how social work practice can contribute to changing society rather than perpetuating poverty, inequality and humiliation. After all…Social Work theory is founded on HUMANISM and EGALITARIANISM.
Let’s not let the rest of the world forget that!
