From the Paper:

"Social work is one of the most challenging and rewarding careers there are. The field of family services is filled with heartache, stress and happiness depending on the situation and the family involved. It is the job of the family social worker to work with the family to bring it together and remove the dysfunction that caused the social worker to get involved in the first place. Because of the goal of the social worker one might say that if the job is done correctly the social worker works himself or herself out of the job. Unfortunately there is a tremendous amount of dysfunction in America today and social workers are loaded down with more cases then they can handle. We have all heard the stories about children dying and the social worker had not been out to see the child in months. With funding being as minimal as it is and budget cuts being a fact of the profession social workers do the best they can with the resources that are available to them."
