Profile

The level of a society’s civility reflects on how it treats its marginalized and valuable populations. Siu Ming’s understanding of social work is a profession that should be the social conscience of the society, should find ways to address structural inequalities, should translate theories to practical knowledge in order to solve day-to-day issues in local communities; and should build a strong democracy to promote human rights for generations to come.  With such believes, Siu Ming insists that a social worker should be trained along three dimensions: research, practice, and teaching.  A social worker should be a researcher; his/her job is to investigate a problem, create knowledge, and provide solutions to improve the well-being of mankind. A social worker should be a practitioner; his/her duty is to use practice expertise to serve his/her community. A social worker should be an educator; his/she is obliged is to train and hand down the social work knowledge to next generation of social workers and let them to continue the mission of social work of making the society a better place to live for our further generations.
