Abstract

The clinical practice of social work has been strongly influenced by the theoretical tradition of individual psychology and psychiatry. The purpose of this article is to draw parallels concerning the development of the self between recent psychoanalytic theory and earlier formulations found in the sociological tradition of symbolic interactionism. The author suggests that a unity of understanding between the two thought systems is useful to the knowledge base of social work practice.
