Summary/Abstract: Fundamental humanistic values and categories as human rights, social justice, human complexity, self-determination of person, personality, socio-human context, creativity and spirituality are, also, the values/principles, of contemporary social work theory and practice. The „humanistic social work” concept comes to organize, epistemological-methodological, into system, giving to theory and practice in social work both an unitary theoretical and methodological framework and a forum for debate and professional or scientific innovation. The article presents the essential resources of humanistic social work, personality and socio-human context, and philosophical and scientific sources of the concept, with emphasis on existentialism, humanistic psychology and sociology. Personal and socio-human development, participation, action, attachment, empathy and happiness theories, appreciative methods, humanistic psychotherapies and existential analysis is theoretical and methodological bases of policy and practice in the humanistic social work.
