[Extract] Practice and extension are basic essentials of professional social work. Social work education cannot be offered withour practice and extension. One of the main reasons for the lack of due recognition to the social work profession in India is because it is embedded in the traditional college and university system, that too, in the arts and science stream of higher education. Looking back, at the time when the profession is celebrating its Platinum Jubilee, we can very well realize that practice and extension need to be strengthened and inextricably interwoven with social work education to take the profession to greater heights and make it socially relevant. This volume contains papers reporting some experiences with practice and extension and insights drawn by social work educators, students, practitioners and researchers.
