This quote, from former Brown School Dean Benjamin E. Youngdahl, rings as true today as it did when he delivered the speech titled "What We Believe" in 1952.
"What We Believe" is also the title of a new book that chronicles the nearly 100 years of social work education at Washington University in St. Louis.
The book begins with a look at poverty and early social work education in St. Louis and concludes with a snapshot of more recent accomplishments and a look toward the school's future.
Threaded throughout are milestones and themes in social work education and related policy, as well as first-person accounts and vignettes from alumni and current and former faculty.
If you are interested in the history of social work, this book is the perfect addition to your collection.
