I learned a lot about Structural Family Therapy and how to do social work with families referred from the Administration for Children's Services. This job is ideal for someone looking to get their hours for their license and who doesn't mind working in the field. Many clients will be resistant to coming into the office based on the nature of the work and this often causes social workers to have to do more than the minimum once per month home visits.
There is a lot of paperwork involved as with most social work jobs, but management has made several changes over the past year which was frustrating to employees. The management comes across as supportive but when it comes to making changes to ease tension for social workers, nothing gets done.
Hardest part of the job is working with clients who don't want you to work with them. Most enjoy able part of the job is seeing change in families who do want to improve.
