ABSTRACT
Social work practices aims to increase human happiness in general. It is not simply a matter of charity, but it is a job where a social worker helps clients to solve their problems in order to achieve satisfaction in life. Health and medical problems are not separated from social and psychological aspects because the patient's attitude to his illness plays a vital role in the rehabilitation process. The treatment of social and emotional correlates of physical diseasehas not yet caught up with the great advances in the filed of medicine, although marked progress has been made. Social work is one of many in our society services that contribute to this increase. The branch of social work that is particularly interested in the social and emotional problems of physically ill and performed in a medical setting is called medicosocial work.
