In its submission to the Social Work Task Force, the ADCS said courses were failing to prepare graduates who were immediately ready to enter the workforce. Child development. It identified a strong case for specialisation in the last year of the degree, including knowledge of child development, multi-agency working and a core set of skills for the childrens workforce.. But ADCS rejected Lord Lamings recommendation that childrens specialisation should occur in the second year of the degree, arguing that this would risk losing the coherence of social work as a profession across adults and childrens services.

The role and importance of assessment in development of health and social services are well accepted in the field and represent the fundamental building blocks for the creation of any form of social intervention. Needs assessments are, without question, the most common form of assessment in these fields. They typically, however, result in a rather narrow view of a community that stresses disease risk profiles and lists of various social problem categories. Nevertheless, unlike needs assessments, asset assessments bring a range of factors and considerations to the

Newer areas of social work practice involve management science.[23] The growth of social work administration for transforming social policies into services and directing activities of an organization toward achievement of goals is a related field.[24] Helping clients with accessing benefits such as unemployment insurance and disability benefits, to assist individuals and families in building savings and acquiring assets to improve their financial security over the long-term, to ...

Research direction comes out of a range of social work practice settings for Dr. Mona Schatz. Recent research activities arise from experiences that are personally challenging, often examining areas of practice that have had little or no attention in the professional publications. For example, for more than four years, Dr. Schatz has been learning about private pension accounts such as Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA) and other similar retirement saving approaches. These financial accounts are new; the Boomers are the first generation to have financial vehicles such as these accounts to support them in their retirement years. Earlier, Dr. Schatz worked with social work colleagues and the City of Casper to examine the views and expectations of upcoming Boomers. Their views about retirement were illuminating and became the impetus of more work into financial realms. From the Casper Boomer Study, Dr. Schatz learned that Wyoming Boomers have limited financial resources for the future, most ...

Gambling disorder is a significant public health concern. The recent and continued proliferation of land-based and interactive gambling opportunities has increased both accessibility and acceptability of gambling in the United States and abroad, resulting in greater and more varied participation. However, there is currently no designated federal funding for prevention, intervention, treatment, or research, and states are left to adopt varying standards on an ad hoc basis. Social workers receive little or no training in screening or treating problem gamblers, though research suggests that a significant proportion of those with mental health and other addictive disorders also gamble excessively. Raising awareness about the nature and scope of gambling disorder and its devastating implications for families and children is a first-step toward integrating gambling into prevention, assessment and treatment education in social work. This, in turn, will increase the chances of early identification and ...

Jordan Moore, Clinical Social Work/Therapist, Cambridge, MA 02138, I utilize a combination of strengths-based and client-centered psychotherapies to offer therapy that is personally tailored to each of my clients. I work to ensure that I meet each individual where they are, throughout our work together. I draw from a variety of theoretical orientations including: psychodynamic (insight oriented), CBT (skills development) and DBT (mindfulness and skills). I believe that psychotherapy works most effectively when it addresses both current issues ( e.g. anxiety, relationship conflict), and the patterns that led to those issues.

Clinical social work is a derivative profession, drawing its knowledge and practice base from several theoretical schools. The four primary theoretical schools contributing to social-work philosophy are psychodynamic, humanist, cognitive-behavioral, and postmodern. Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), although considered one of the third-wave behavioral approaches, draws from all four theoretical schools of clinical intervention. This entry gives an overview of ACT development, its essential features, empirical base, tenets and techniques, and relevance to the social-work profession.
Michael Chenkin, Clinical Social Work/Therapist, Somerville, NJ, 08876, (908) 444-0157, You have a love/hate relationship with alcohol--sometimes its enough to make you throw up. Feelings of guilt and shame about drinking hang heavy on your heart. After making countless promises to yourself and others to stop, your failure sits out there for everyone to see. Last night you had not a care in the world. This morning its hard to look at yourself in the mirror. Embarrassing episodes from the past haunt you. The hangovers are upsetting, but not as upsetting as the anxiety and depression you keep at bay with alcohol. You know your life would be better if you could change but you still havent found a way to do that.

The complexity and variability of psychosocial issues associated with cancer has created the demand for highly skilled practitioners who are trained to provide multilevel assessment and intervention throughtout the illness continuum. Oncology social workers are primary providers of psychosocial services in major oncology treatment centers and community health care settings throughout the world, both because of their knowledge about cancer and its psychosocial impact, and because of their practice versatility. Oncology social workers are trained in prevention, education, advocacy, research, and counseling. Their role has evolved to a central role in oncology care for several reasons. 1. Social work was established early in the 20th century as an essential component of the interdisciplinary health care team when Ida Canon became the first hospital social worker at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston in 1919. The hospital social work role was initiated as it was recognized that the sources of illness

[more ▼]. The current economic and social crisis in the EU has an impact on the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD, 2006), a challenge that has only just begun to emerge as a collective task within social work and has matured as an important topic in social work education and research within European social work.

This chapter analyses the relationship between New Labours modernisation agenda, managerialism, and information and communications technology (ICT), and then looks at the relationship between ICT and social work in a contact centre in the United Kingdom. It focuses on the experience of working in a contact centre as a social worker, and the role and identity of social workers in this context. The chapter also provides insights into how the contact-centre environment positions social workers in relation to service users and how the use of ICT affects work processes. Moreover, it considers what motivates social workers to work in this environment, their perceptions of occupational stress in this setting, and the effect of this model on their social-work skills. Finally, the chapter examines research in the public and private sectors to see what it has to offer in relation to the social-services context, before reflecting on the implications for social work in the future.
Mental Disorders in the Social Environment. Social workers provide more mental health services than any other profession, yet recent biomedical trends in psychiatry appear to minimize the importance of their traditional concerns, which focus on the social environment that accompanies mental disorders and their treatment. In twenty-four chapters written by distinguished scholars this book not only calls attention to this emerging problem and challenges conventional mental health beliefs and practices, but also raises provocative questions: Has social work become too closely associated with psychiatry and too quick to adopt a medical approach? Has the focus on the therapeutic relationship negated social works commitment to social reform? Is the social worker marginalized by the emphasis in mental health on biochemistry and psychopharmacology?. This book calls on social workers and other health care professionals to be more skeptical about diagnosis, community treatment, evidence-based practice, ...

Title: Applying the Theory of Planned Behavior to Sexual Violence Prevention. Background and Purpose: Social workers encounter millions of women and girls affected by gender-based sexual violence. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has identified the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) as holding particular promise for sexual violence prevention. According to the TPB, behavioral intent is comprised of the following facets: individuals behavioral beliefs, normative beliefs, subjective norms, situational control beliefs which results in perceived behavioral control. Behavioral intent, in the TPB, is considered the indicator that a person is ready or has the intent to perform a given behavior. While TPB has been used to predict and explain other health-related behaviors (e.g. smoking), there is no empirical work applying the theory to sexual violence prevention. The aim of this study is to apply TPB for the purpose of program evaluation pertaining to a sexual violence program which ...
Our broad-based faculty team explores issues around children, youth and families by looking at the big picture - and big data - examining systems-level organizational policies and evaluating interventions at the client level. Our researchers are informing quality assurance for child welfare assessments conducted by the Department of Social Services.

This study explored social workers perceived level of competency in addressing chronic pain and mental health. Chronic pain is a prevalent issue and individuals with chronic pain are more likely to experience a mental health concern (Dahlhamer et al., 2016; Gureje et al., 2008). The research design of this study was a quantitative cross-sectional survey distributed through social networks such as Facebook and Reddit. There were a total of 278 respondents, however, 79 were omitted due to not fully completing the survey leaving 199 respondents. The results indicate social workers have a moderate level of competency when working with this specialized population and years of experience, age, having a LCSW and personal experience with chronic pain were found to be associated with higher levels of perceived competency. Factors not found to be associated with perceived competency were gender, ethnicity, and religiosity. Recommendations include incorporating more chronic pain training into the social work
The impact of parental substance misuse on child welfare is now being increasingly recognized. Drug and alcohol problems feature in a substantial proportion of families where there are child-care concerns and raise issues about engagement, confidentiality, assessment and inter-agency practice. This article explores some of the dilemmas faced by social welfare professionals who work with substance misusing parents. Based on a qualitative analysis of 40 semi-structured interviews with a wide range of practitioners from both adult focused and child and family settings, in both the voluntary and statutory sector, a variety of emerging themes will be discussed and linked to those from other studies. The problems of working with denial, the tensions created by different agency objectives and protocols and the way in which children can often fall through gaps in services will be highlighted, as will the way in which some professionals have sought to resolve the dilemmas they encounter. This will then ...
In the Fall of 2003, I started my undergraduate career at the University of Alaska Anchorage. For as long as I could remember I had wanted to be a veterinarian and had begun my freshman year as a Pre-vet major. Before long, I came to the startling realization that biology and chemistry were not a place of academic strength for me and my hopes of making it through four more years of these particular types of classes became daunting and perhaps unrealistic.. However, at this same time, I was enrolled in an Introduction to Social Work and Social Welfare Policy course, and it had become a respite from the periodic table of elements and algebraic algorithms that were the cornerstone of my other classes that semester. Before enrolling in that course, I had no idea that a profession such as Social Work existed. I had spent most of my life interested in human behavior and how the environment can influence the way that people navigate their lives. I had also been enamored by social justice movements and ...
