Social Work as a profession was founded on the principles of social justice. Social work centers around understanding the person in the context of the environment. At the same time, Social Work exists in a larger cultural context that privileges individuals over families, communities, and neighborhoods. The dominant ideology of whiteness, capital, maleness is embedded and embodied in our diagnosis, funding mechanisms, organizations, and educational system. This duality of experience for social work creates a moral split between the tenets of change and the construction of the health care system. Social Work faces an existential threat. We also can and should be the leaders in understanding and promoting healing organizations.
