Abstract. The article explores the issue of precarity in the field of social work, proposing the concept of super-precariousness to represent the condition that specifically concerns social workers who, as a consequence of an unstable employment status, also find themselves suffering a precariousness of professional identity. The thesis is that the performance of social work with a non-standard contractual framework determines a conditioned use of the methodological apparatus and professional tools of the social service and leads to the self-perception of a weakening of the professional role. Circumstances that trigger the questioning of professional identity itself. The proposal of the concept of super-precariousness is debated by referring to the evidence offered by empirical research conducted on a sample of precarious social workers in three regions (Veneto, Tuscany, Sicily).
