Eco social work – also referred to as ‘green social work’ or ‘environmental social work’ – is concerned with how environmental issues, such as extreme weather events and climate change, affect people and communities.

This dynamic area of social work provides workers. Social work has been ‘defined’ as a profession of many faces; an art and a science, whose knowledge base is eclectic. The increasing incidence of human and natural disasters, have resulted in a clarion call being made for the social work profession to play a meaningful role in tackling environmental challenges.

Similar work from Finland promoted a new “Eco-social approach” for social work (Matthies, Nahri, & Ward, ; Narhi, ). In his book Ecology and Social Work: Toward a New Paradigm, Coates () argued that the Western focus on the individual and competition has made us blind and indifferent to our connectedness with the natural world.

With the world on the brink of ecological crisis and with environmental disasters and ongoing landscape degradation reducing our capacity to sustain a healthy planet, the social work profession is reimagining the environment as a critical field of social work practice.Ecological systems theory is explicated as a current form of successive systems models used in social work.

Behavior principles assumptive in this model are identified: of exchange balance, inner consistency, and dialectial change. Several misconceptions of ecological systems theory and a cultist aspect of its current popularity are addressed.
