Дилеммы профессионализации приходской социальной работы в государстве благосостояния
The purpose of this article is to consider the special characteristics of the new helping profession in the religious context. We examine the case of social work at the orthodox parish. The formation of the parish of social work in Russia in the 2000s is characterized by several key contradictions, some of them are typical for the development of the profession as a whole, while others are specific for parish social work. The article outlines the initial stage of the research project and is based on an analysis of open source information and interviews with social workers and orthodox priests.
