Social workers are often front line employees of government offices (like DCFS) or local non-profit organizations that are funded by government grants to provide direct services to clients. Have you ever complained that services offered don't seem to work effectively or match what people need? What are some differences between providing services for individuals and practicing at a level that influences decision-making about what services are provided? This session is a discussion about how social work skills in assessment, care plan development, support/advocacy, and evaluation can be used on a macro level with the addition of knowledge and attention to specific ethical questions.
