Editorial

Social Work profession and discipline is still under the lacunae one single umbrella journal or a forum to bring to light the voice and best practices from the field. Social Work Education, Research and Action (SWERA) is a refereed journal concerned with education, practice and action in social work. This literary endeavor intends to create a forum for exchange of innovative, creative and practical ideas on varied aspects, issues and problems relevant to social work education profession. It raise voice on behalf of the weaker and deprived sections of the society by focusing majorly on academic and research-based contribution on different welfare, development and empowerment issues which explore the grassroots dynamics of different development initiatives across the globe and thus represents a consortium for pro-people policies and role of the discipline in the ambit of development and empowerment.

Social Work is a dynamic, practice-based profession and an academic discipline that promote social change and development, social cohesion, and the empowerment and liberation of people. Principle of social justice, human rights, collective responsibility and respect for diversities are central to social work. Underpinned by theories of social work, social sciences, humanities and indigenous knowledge, social work engages people and structures to address life challenges and enhance wellbeing” ( IASSW, 2014). Thus we can see that a stress on integrating the academic and field of practice is the need of the hour for the profession.

Social Work Education, Research and Action (SWERA) is an official publication of the National Association of Professional Social Workers in India and it seeks to bring the academia and field of practice under one banner-highlighting the future strategies, sustainability of the profession, legal requirements and best practices from the field. In the processes of globalization, post modernism and post colonialism, every social phenomenon varies as per social and historical context in which they operate. With the result, western models of Social Work practice is universal in practice are questionable since, India culture and social service traditions put emphasis on multifaceted physical, mental and spiritual development of a person in an integrated manner, willingness to undergo personal sacrifice of highest order (if need be) and promotion of well-being of people, particularly those who are in distress in society. Consequently, the knowledge base of Social Work is interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary having developed its own theoretical foundation and research base as well drawing theories from other human sciences. But, recognition and use of indigenous knowledge by acknowledging that in each region, country, area, and people carry their own values, ways of knowing, ways of transmitting their knowledge is the need of hour. The present Journal is an attempt in this direction.

This journal shall be published thrice in a year and seek to bring together academicians, field practitioners and students and pen down their thoughts and experiences. People from both, field and academia are invited to contribute their literary works. Feedbacks, suggestions for further improvement and fine tuning of the journal are also invited form across the board including the NAPSWI members.
