A new Social Work Podcast is up:
Communities that Care, an interview with Richard Catalano,
Before we get to the interview, I want you to imagine for a
moment how you would work with a pregnant 16-year old sexual abuse
survivor who was addicted to crack, semi-illiterate, suicidal,
diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and whose baby daddy was
prostituting her in exchange for drugs. Ok, got your treatment plan
figured out? If you're thinking, "I know I need to address her
suicidality first, but after that, I'm not really sure," then you'd
be right, and you're probably not alone...
As part of your studying process, it can't hurt to steep
yourself in social work conversation and information. You
never know what might help you with that one extra correct answer
that gets you your license. Alert: The podcast starts
playing as soon as you go to the page, so you may want to mute your
computer before clicking through at work.
