practice happens to be quite a strenuous subject to comprehend, though a fascinating one if well understood. The ten sessions provided me with remarkable pieces of literature that demonstrate the theme of perspective at social work and all were designed to be read by those people who are grappling with work-related identity crises, which they may have attempted to modify in developing an easier and comfortable lifestyle in their immediate society. In conclusion, I find every need to do a thorough investigation about the attributes of a good social worker. This step will enable me to unravel all the complex information in the bid to make my profession relevant to me and to the society that benefits from my services. The research will also form a basis for future developments in the social work professions since many scholars will strive to establish the verity regarding the existing work theories. In a nutshell, courtesy of these sessions, I have understood that I have been battling with the identity work crisis as I have been having vague wishes to fully feel comfortable and perhaps reach self-actualization based on Maslow’s theory. I also wish to be known by what I have been working hard to attain, and until that happens, I shall not identify myself adequately.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
