Social Work Careers
Those interested in a career in social work will find that there are a number of career paths they can explore. Social workers collaborate with groups, individuals, families, and communities to facilitate a better quality of life. For those wishing to tackle injustices on a local or global scale, a public policy or administration concentration is an option. While some wish to address issues on a macro level, others may be interested in effecting change on a more personal level. These types of professionals may wish to explore work as a family social worker. Those who are interested in treating people for mental and emotional problems can seek out clinical social work, while those wishing to improve the well-being of groups may consider Community health. Finally, substance abuse social workers assist people in overcoming their struggles, improving their mental health, and finding clarity in their thoughts.
