The aim of this paper is to bring elements to the debate on professional training in the context of the counter-reform of higher education in Brazil and its implications for the ethical-political social work project. It will be explained as the quantitative logic has been made evident at the expense of the quality of education. We resume the principles that guide the professional training in social work, highlighting the Abepss General Guidelines (1996). Finally, we try to rescue the struggles and coping strategies democratically constructed and incorporated by organizing entities of the Brazilian Social Service to extend this debate and reassure the defense of the professional project.
