Abstract

The rapid pace of everyday life, as well as the life filled with stressful situations, everyday obligations, challenges and expectations, leads to a disturbance of tranquility, stability, comfortableness in people and in the most difficult case, disturbance of their state of health in different types. In the face of such a situation, social services emerge to help in the most productive way. Starting from the fact that human behavior is truly complex, social work is broad and uses numerous practice theories at different levels. Theory, in essence, refers to interconnected and systemically related groups of concepts and statements, which are organized in order to clarify relations on certain aspects. Social work may not have developed its own theory, but it successfully uses theories from other scientific disciplines. In order to have success in the realization of the social activities, it is necessary to have a ratio in theory and practice, because working without one of them is impossible. To be successful and effective in their work, social workers use a range of theories, working models and concepts with their clients, adapting them to their needs. It should be noted that social workers have the main role in providing customer assistance, and that is why they will occupy an important place in this paper. Contently we will try to give a concise explanation of the theories of social work and theories for social work, as well as the great responsibility of social workers who face daily challenges in this sphere.
