Social Work, Psychoanalysis, and Smoke-Filled Rooms: Transformations of a Professional Self

Mark D. Smaller, Ph.D.

This paper describes one social worker's journey from the first days of his social work education to his current experience as a psychoanalyst, and the subsequent transformation of his professional self. The complementary nature of the relationship between social work and psychoanalysis is considered. Through a personal vignette, the author hopes to remind current social work educators about the usefulness of psychoanalytic theory and practice within the context of casework values and principles.
