Termination is a critical phase in social work. It is a period of emotional vulnerability. This paper examines Martha, a woman with two children who has been engaged in learning programs at a social care facility following a severely abusive relationship. The paper shows that at the end of a one-hundred-and-eighty-day period, Martha now faces discharge from this care facility and an examination of her experiences with termination demonstrates how client termination can be handled in a manner that empowers the client.
From the Paper:"The process of terminating a patient from a social care program is difficult (Hepworth & Larsen, 2001). It is not similar to discharging the patient from a hospital or medical care center. A patient in a social care setting tends to have undergone significant emotional bonding to the social care center and its members (Hepworth & Larsen, 2001). In almost all circumstances, clients entering a care center do so at a difficult period in their lives, and the role that the care center plays in their recovery and in helping to develop their futures means that the client has placed a significant emotional and personal investment in the care center (Fortune, 1995; Hepworth & Larsen, 2001). The Sarah Burke House takes these factors into account when they discharge clients."
