Communication is a central theme in social work practice and a major component in social work training. This study of 333 social work graduates in Israel examined the association between their perceptions of themselves as communicators and their satisfaction with social work as course of study and as chosen profession. The research demonstrated that the hypothesized association does exist but it is weaker than expected. Perceived communication skills and motivations exerted a stronger influence on attitudes toward social work among students of non-western origin.
