Social Work Practice in the Field of Family Studies in India

Lina Kashyap


This article briefly traces the historical development of family social work in India by first providing a brief description of the development of the family-centred model of practice and the emergence of the discipline of Family Studies and their key elements. It then discusses how family studies can be developed as a new field of practice for social work in India. The scope of social work practice in this field is extracted from the author’s  experience of developing a Master’s degree level online programme in International Family Studies at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences.
