Social work as art: Counterbalancing the ticket infestation in social work

Sammendrag

We begin with a narrative of the creative way in which the idea for this paper emerged. We explain the metaphor of the ‘tick infestation’ that represents the rational-technical side of social work. Then we examine the need to balance it with the humanistic-expressive side using the metaphor of the garden as the globalised world, the flower as its people and the social worker as the photographer and gardener. Art has always been a form of expression in people’s daily life while social work and photography are part of the civilized, modern world. We use the relationship between them to explain social work as art and to support our argument that the ‘arts’ develop the capacity for creative thinking and imagining, problem-solving, and critical judgment essential to good social work practice.
