The actions social workers take are aimed at helping people, communities, and societies attain a sense of mastery, become or remain competent, and achieve or retain a sense of well-being. Such a broad scope of practice necessitates a theoretical foundation that is anchored in the concept of human competence. This text explores the concept of competence and shows how it is expressed in a variety of theoretical frameworks, including traditional models and emerging theoretical approaches. The volume is organized around the competency-based approach to social work education adopted by the Council on Social Work Education.
