Where is Developmental Social Work as Social Work Practice Method in Tanzania? The case of Dar es Salaam Region

Developmental social work is a process of planned social change designed to promote the well-being of the population. The main objective of this study was to be realized by: examining social workers knowledge and perceptions towards developmental social work, identifying challenges faced by social workers on the utilization of developmental social work and exploring social workers’ suggestions on improving the utilization of developmental social work. The nature of economic and social problems facing vulnerable populations in Tanzania today requires a combination of different methods including that of developmental social work, if sustainable development has to be realized.
