Abstract

Throughout social work history there has been concern about social workers' commitment to the poor and to social action on their behalf. This article compares the findings of surveys of professional social workers conducted in 1968 and 1984 to determine the changes, if any, in social workers' attitudes toward poverty, lowincome clients, and activist goals and strategies for the profession. The implications of the data for the identity of the profession are explored.
