dc.description.abstract This article will review the interventions that are adopted by the social practitioners especially those based in Azania. It looks at the changes that have taken place in the post apartheid era that signaled the new epoch in the country’s welfare history. The paper will scrutinize various approaches of interventions in relations to meeting changes that are taking place in the country. In understanding various approaches, the paper will look at Vexliard (1968) theories such as the autoplastic and alloplastic notions. Lastly, the paper will examine the current practices and their implications towards the development of social welfare policy for social work in general especially in Azania, social-work education in meeting community daily livelihoods in view of poverty and the unemployment that is ravaging the vulnerable communities in the country. en
