Need for Studying Personality Development for Social Work Practice

Social work practice is a professional approach towards
the solution of psychosocial and behavioural problems
of human beings. It deals with all the aspects of
human life including growth and development of
personality. Some social scientists consider social work
as a behavioural science. It is also accepted that
services rendered by social workers will be fruitful
only when the basic information about the problems,

nature and level of psycho-sexual development is known by 
the worker. The personality assessment tasks of
the different stages of development must be known by
the social worker for the diagnosis and treatment of
psychosocial problems. Studying personality
development is helpful for social work practitioners to
develop their competence.
