Abstract: This article focuses on the conference titled "Social Work Development and Perspectives" held from October 11-12, 2002, at the Vytautus Magnus University in Kaunas, Lithuania. Social work as a profession and other social sciences such as sociology and psychology remained undeveloped in Lithuania. The idea of professional social work came to this country through open relations with Western countries, but it also represents ideas from former independent Lithuanian civil society institutions. Later in Lithuania, other social work education programs were opened in state universities as well as at professional schools. Every university or school has had different partners from different Western countries, thus importing a large variety of different understandings of social work education and the profession. Now there are seven universities, six colleges, and many professional schools educating social workers in Lithuania, not to speak of several programs of education of social pedagogues. The gap between social work study programs and social pedagogy study programs in different Lithuanian universities may be very deep, but, as the conference on the other hand showed, all schools are involved in joint projects of social work development on the national and international levels, a chance for more co-operation
