PREFACE: This book provides an insight: the capacity of understanding hidden truths (The Concise Oxford Dictionary). This implies that the nature and dynamics of contemporary social work in South Africa is defined in terms of a developmentally orientated paradigm, so as to adapt to existing tendencies and perspectives. Because the total field of social work is so comprehensive, only an overview of this insight will be provided.
