These are the ways Freud addresses society and gives a glimpse into society, in his psychoanalytical theory. This, therefore, transforms into the psychosocial theory, where man is perceived as the social being.
Taking this theory further, we find that the psychosocial theory does address the patterns of social work practices. This began attaining importance after the World War I. For instance, counselling and social work does incorporate this in its purview. Amongst the numerous problems that patients come up with, one of the problems that draws our concern is the insecurity about the lack of sexual identity, among certain individuals. When this is encountered in a woman, it is often a very traumatic perception and realisation for the individual; and the social worker plays a very imperative role in helping the person emerge out of the great dilemma.
