A Survey Analysis on a More Effective Model of Social Work for Sri Lanka with Reference to Selected WPSW and BSW Institutions Operated in Sri Lanka
Abstract and Figures
Despite the fact that social work education started in Sri Lanka in 1952, this field has been progressing at a snail’s pace. Even if there are about 1500 trained social workers, these social workers are not yet identified as professionals in the field of social work in Sri Lanka (Ranaweera 2020). On the other hand, a manifold of Buddhist organizations, especially the temples, have been carrying out social services in the country as a part of the practice of Buddhist teachings even though most of them are unrecognized as “social work.” In such a context, the present research attempts to identify whether it is Western practice which has been developed in a completely different society, culture, religious background, etc., which is the reason for the sluggish progress of professional social work in Sri Lanka. The research also addresses the issue of whether Buddhist social work in Sri Lanka has the capacity to be recognized as professional social work.
