 Based on the article written by
Prof. RajeshwarPrasad,
Former Director,Institute of Social Sciences, AgraIASSI Quarterly, Vol.20.No.1.2001PPT Presentation byS. RengasamyMadurai Institute of Social Sciences
There is a plethora of theories in Social workeducation, training, research & practice
One may account for approximately thirty theoriestaught during the period of instruction to social workgraduates.
These theories have been borrowed from other disciplines viz. psychiatry, psychology, sociology,anthropology, economics, criminology, politicalscience, theology, philosophy, administration etc.
Attempt is made by social work educators andpractitioners to do a good fit of these theories withprofessional practice of social work.
 Theories in Social Work Vs Social Work Theory
It will be useful if we understand the different types of theories taughtand the logic as why are these theories imparted to the students.
It may be logical to group these theories in broader categoriese.g.
Theories of evolution,
Theories of personality (development) & learning theories,
Theories of social organization and social change, theories of social stratification,
Theories of individual and group behavior 
Theories of deviance, crime and correction,
Theories of economic growth and development, theories of groupdynamics and leadership
Theories of social work (clinical practice) etc.
