Meaning as a Core Principle in Social Work Practice
This paper explores the concept of meaning as a focus area for expanding core values and practice realities in social work. By focusing on helping clients develop a sense of meaning and purpose in their lives, social workers can help clients maximize their personal and cultural strengths in the service of meeting their developmental and social aims. A case example is used, and concepts discussed are applied in the area of finding meaning in life.
