Abstract: Social work indigenisation is a necessary reflection under the Western cultural imperialism. However, indigenisation is a highly complicated and multi-dimensional process. The natures of social work are also controversial and diversified. In this paper, the writer tries to discuss the process of indigenisation in social work practice in Hong Kong. It seems that social work practice in Hong Kong gradually removed its attachment on “Westernised model” to reflection of local social and cultural contexts. In the 1990s, the debates on indigenisation began to gain enough momentum for a more comprehensive and holistic reflection of social work practice in Hong Kong.
