About Social Worker Assessment Test

Social work is a profession concerned with helping individuals, families, groups and communities to enhance their individual and collective well-being. It aims to help people develop their skills and their ability to use their own resources and those of the community to resolve problems. Social work is concerned with individual and personal problems but also with broader social issues such as poverty, unemployment, and domestic violence.

Social workers work in a variety of settings: family services agencies, children’s aid agencies, general and psychiatric hospitals, school boards, correctional institutions, welfare administration agencies, federal and provincial departments. An increasing number of social workers work in private practice. Social workers provide services as members of a multidisciplinary team or on a one-to- one basis with the client. The duties performed by social workers vary depending on the settings in which they work. Social workers employed by child welfare agencies (public and private) investigate cases of family violence, child abuse, and neglect and take protective action as required. They may recruit foster parents or supervise the placement of children in protective care. Others work on adoption cases. Many school boards hire social workers to help students adjust to the school environment. They help students, parents and teachers to deal with problems such as aggressive behavior, truancy, and family problems, which affect the students’ performance. In general, psychiatric hospitals and social workers are members of the treatment team. They provide a link between the team and the family as well as with community resources. In these settings, they contribute to the care, treatment, and rehabilitation of the aged and of physically or mentally ill individuals, as well as the care of disabled persons. In health and community services centers, social workers are involved in the provision of counseling to individuals or families and in providing services to seniors. Some work as community developers helping citizens to identify their needs and proposing ways of meeting these needs. Others may assist with parent-child relationships and marriage counseling.

The services may be offered on an individual basis or in groups. In the correctional field, social workers may be part of a team concerned with the social rehabilitation of young or adult offenders. They may work as classification officers. Others work as probation officers or as parole officers. Parole officers help ex-prisoners adjust to life in the community while conforming to the conditions of their parole. Social workers in private practice offer their services on a fee-for- service basis to individuals, families, and organizations. Their services include counseling, psychotherapy, meditation, sex therapy, policy and program development, organizational development, and employee assistance programs. Social workers involved in policy analysis, policy development and planning are usually working in federal and provincial departments or social planning councils. Researchers are found in universities and governments. Others are teaching in universities and community colleges.
