My cousin is a child advocate for SS.
She loves her job but says many days she goes home with a heavy heart.
Quoting Anonymous:What do you want to do as a social worker? They have social workers that license foster homes; ones that work in the prison system; ones that work with foster kids; ones that work in hospitals as grief counselors. There are dozens of types of social workers; you can work with kids; and adults; drug abusers; inmates; the sick. Etc
I too am interested in the soccial work field just not sure which specific direcction to go. I kinda thought the school was generi then whichevver job you founnd took you in your direction. I will be attending Chico State next fall
Quoting Mommy2b2many:I worked as a CASA; court appointed special advocate. So I worked alot with social workers and their cases, I was going to be a social worker but after being a casa I knew I couldn't hack it as a SW; I saw things that broke me heart :(. But as a PP said there are several areas a social worker can go into; it's not all abused kids
