Florence Day, “A Study of Casework Practice,” 1935
Florence Day reviewed recent casework studies in order to evaluate current casework practice by starting with social workers’ experiences rather than starting with theory. This, then, might reassure those social workers who questioned the new emphasis on theory in their profession by giving evidence for which ones worked in which settings.
It is only when our general professional practice finds new concepts to be practical that our uncertainties are turned into convictions.
Bertha Capen Reynolds’s response follows Days’s essay.
