LCSWs act as advocates and help clients gain access to resources while confronting their personal issues, such as mental illness, addiction, and abuse. A variety of private, public, and non-profit organizations employ LCSWs, with the greatest number of employment opportunities occurring in urban areas. Social workers may specialize in mental health and substance abuse; medical and public health; or child, family, and school social work. They may also work in research, administration, policy-making, or public planning. Clinical social work often takes place in residential facilities, hospitals, offices, and clients' homes. In addition to a 40-hour work week, social workers may find it necessary to work some evenings and weekends to meet with clients.
CSWs are expected to behave ethically and professionally, demonstrate excellent communication skills and be capable of working with diverse populations. Since they interact with professionals from many different social service and government agencies, they must be able to collaborate well with others. The profession also requires emotional resilience and stability since the work often involves dealing with crises.
As a social worker, you advocate for others, be they young or old. You’ll work with clients from every station in life, and sometimes dire economic backdrops, to ease them through transitions, hardships, and mentally tough times. You’ll be the person who assists them in finding the proper resources to get the care or supplement they need to sustain a certain quality of life. You may also be the link between people and caregivers in the health and psychology professions. As a social worker, you’ll find reward, take risks, and offer viable options for those who may not be capable—or willing—to help themselves. What does a social worker do? There are two basic types of social workers: direct social workers and clinical social workers. One works and interacts with the community while the other offers assistance in a clinical setting: On the job, direct social workers will: Identify those in need Help people of all life stages cope with and solve everyday problems Advocate for and develop plans to improve clients’ well-being Research and refer clients to community resources Work with individuals, families or groups Respond to clients in crisis situations Work in a variety of public and private organizations Clinical social workers will: Observe client behavior, assess needs and create treatment strategies Diagnose psychological, behavioral and emotional disorders Develop and put treatment plans in place Consult with doctors, therapists and medical professionals Administer social service programs Instruct clients’ families during treatment
