The requirements of postmodern university education, in a global
context, give a fundamental importance to practical work. Prospective social
workers need to develop not only knowledge but also skills and values to

social issues. At national level there is a bill submitted to the Chamber of
Deputies, which proposed to consider field training as length of serviceafter
graduation. If such an approach will become law, social work graduates will
have better access to the labor market thus eliminating bureaucratic
employer conditionsto have years of experience.
“Social Work Practice” is the result of a unanimous desire of the
teaching staff of the Department of Social Work from the West University of
Timisoara. The completion of such a study is in agreement with the need for
improvement of the quality of field instruction, achieving homogenous work

Since the establishment of the department in 1992, practical training of
our students has been a priority, through the rigor of the activities

gratitude to the colleagues who have taken on the challenge to improve field
training, bringing their contributions in completing this volume: Professor
Ana Muntean, PhD, associate professor Alexandru Neagoe, PhD, and Eugen
