I agree, insofaras the number of social workers has grown considerably over the years. Also, the levels of knowledge and expertise should have gone up, and there should be better policies and procedures. However, I believe that some of the changes have been retrograde. Social workers used have relatively small patches, which meant that they got to know the communities they served and the other professionals working in the area, and would deal with most referrals in their patch from beginning to end (and subsequent re-referrals), so relationships and trust were built up. Yes, it wasn't perfect and mistakes were made, but I think it definitely had merit, and should be re-considered. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
