Short Answer

  1. Describe the difference between perspective, theory, and practice model.

Ans: Perspective is a worldview or way of perceiving the world (e.g. positivism, social constructionism, and pragmatism). Theory (e.g., learning theory, feminist, and moral development) is defined as a set of statements aimed at explaining or proving why something happens. Practice model (e.g., cognitive-behavioral, narrative and task-centered) describes how social workers can apply and implement theories in their practice. Further, perspectives, theories and practice models interact with and can inform each other.
