"The family social work is a specialized form of social work, which means as a working unit to the family and family relations, considering the context in which it is inserted. Through this also meet the psychosocial problems affecting the family group, generating a process of helping relationship, which seeks to empower and activate both the resources of their own people, family and social networks."

Reviewer's comments on the document:
We chose this article because the family is the context in which the main part of the diseases are treated and the main group that provides care for patients and old people.
On the other hand there is the necessity of considering the care to patients as a work developed having to have into account the reality of the people, included their familiar situation.
