The social work profession is one of the most important careers for any person because social work is a role that requires constant engagement, learning, and growth. The skills that social workers learn in their careers help people in a myriad of ways, but the very core of social work is caring. It is about supporting people and helping to create the kind of community that people need.
The social work education I have taught for almost five years has been a constant struggle for me. I know I’m not alone in this. Some people I’ve known have said they don’t have any social work degree. Others may never have had any formal training. The key is to just keep working at it. And if you’re able to, try to take a class or two during this time. Most, but not all, of the social workers I’ve worked with have taken classes.
The majority of social workers I know have never taken a class. They think it’s a waste of their time and they’re too busy to bother with it. I say to them, “You are the ones that have the opportunity to learn, so I’m not going to waste it.
I can still see social work as a valuable profession that is worth taking a class or two in. I think it is, but I think social work education is a lot more than just taking a few classes. It is about learning how to work effectively with a client or client group, and it is really important that you learn how to work effectively with others. The more you do it, the more you can help people.
Social work is a difficult field, and it’s not a profession I’m particularly interested in, but I think it is one that should be studied. Of course it can be a lonely profession, especially when you are all alone in your room, but if we want to have a more caring society, we have to learn how to work effectively with other people.
I always get asked what social workers do and how they are taught. My answer is typically “we study the law,” but with social work it is more about helping people. We educate our clients by explaining the law, and we also help them with the “why, how, when, and how not” of each situation by providing a social worker’s perspective.
As a social worker you are a little bit better at what you do. It’s like watching a movie or watching a TV show, you just don’t know. The only reason social workers are taught to work is that you can’t just take up the art of the art of helping people. They are taught to be better at the art of helping other people.
It’s a shame they aren’t teaching social workers more about how the law works. Instead they’re teaching them to be better at being a prosecutor, a judge, and a paralegal. So in the same way that you would be better at being a prosecutor if you were a criminal lawyer, you would be better at being a social worker if you were a paralegal.
Its a shame that social work education is not taught more about the law. Its a shame that social workers are taught how to be a prosecutor, a judge, and a paralegal.
The same can be said of the profession of social work or law enforcement. Both professions can be as good or as bad as you want them to be. If you want a good social worker, you can hire one, if you want a bad social worker you can go find someone who is as bad as you are, or better.
