Once a child is in foster care, a social worker is far from finished with their work. Frequent visits are planned to watch over the safety, needs, and progress of the child. Within these visits the case worker spends a short amount of time alone with the child to get his or her vibe on their new living conditions. This is extremely important to make sure this setting is correct for the child. Making decisions like what is best for that child than lies in the social workers hands.

Relationships must be kept between the family and a child. In order to do so, social workers have to prepare days to bring the separated family together at an appropriate time. However, with an out-of-home placement this time is based around more then one set of care givers. Social workers must find a difficult balance between a child, their birth parents, and the new adults they have been placed with, wether family members or foster parents.

To persuse a career in this feild a master's degree is recommended, however with just a bachalor's degree and determination one can catch a jump start in this career as well. Yet, inorder to glide up the career lador, one with a master's degree will most likely find easier success. Time spent supervised in certian states is even required nowadays to move into a full-time position.

The high stress level that comes along with the job is surely no joke. Licensed social worker and psychotherapist, Mary Pender Greene explains the step ahead a social worker can gain if they had received therapy in their lifetime. Moreover, it shows that personally he or she is willing to point out, and take steps inorder to fix their own issues. This type of charactor is a good, steady base to stablize in this career field.

Social workers do not deal with children, however small,broken eyes that suffered through imaginable things to those in steady homes. They hold the emotions of children who have lost their parents to death, been sexually, physically, or emotionally abused, and even those who suffer because of a lack of nessary essationals. These touchy situations have to be handled with extreme care, which will involve much training inorder to keep a healthy balance between both the childs view, and the parents side.

Many social workers place feelings of abandonment into 5 stages. These stages are shattering, withdrawal, internalizing, rage and lifting. All five stages the social worker has to recognize and handle to the best of their abilities.

As a social worker they are intended to successfully take a broken home, and make decisions to repair it. This can lead to foster care, placing a child with other family members, or even choosing to leave the child in the hands of their parents. Adoption is left as a last choice. Making this decision is far from simple when dealing with such an unstable situation.
