Social workers interview their clients individually, in families, or in groups to figure out the situation/problems, and provide services that will meet their needs.
They may counsel students whose behavior, school progress, or mental or physical state is interfering with their daily life, and assist them with finding services to suit their needs.
Develop and review the service plans with clients. Follow-ups are recommended to see how progress is going with services.

Job Shadow
I chose to do a job shadow with a child, family, and school social worker due to the fact that I work at Laraway Youth and Family Services, and have a few connections.
I job shadowed a lady named Erin Longchamp. She is in fact my clients social worker, so this was interesting to me because I was able to see what she really does within a days work. I was only able to be with her for an hour since she was so busy, and had meetings etc.
I felt like my experience was very rushed, but I figured it was because she was so busy. Erin was never just in her office. She was always up and going somewhere or writing emails, making phone calls, or meeting with someone.
I think one of the major insight moments for me was when she was on the phone, which felt like forever. To me this was good for me to see because it got me thinking about what really goes on in a social workers day. Although I had another amazing insight, which had the complete opposite effect on me, and that was when Erin was done a meeting and the girl came out with a huge smile on her face. That to me showed how great social workers can really be and seeing that someone was helped with just a meeting.
1. Before doing this assignment, what did you know about the types of jobs that existed in the field of social work?
Honestly I didn't know of certain job titles, but I knew that social workers weren't limited to just one thing. Social workers have a huge variety of things they can do.

2.What surprised you about the information you found? What did you learn that reinforced what you already knew?
I was surprised by all the job opportunities people had by becoming a social worker. I knew you could do a lot being a social worker, but I had no idea what kind of jobs. I think the wages reinforced what I already knew because I figured social workers made a lot, but didn't exactly know how much until I did this project.

3. Has doing this project changed your mind about the direction you may take in the field of human services generally or social work more specifically? If so, how? If not, how did this project help solidify your thinking about the direction you may take in the field?
I think this project helped make my decision a lot easier because for a while I thought I wanted to be a case manager, and seeing how much social workers truly have to do is just not for me. Yes, I like staying busy, but I'm not sure I want to be that busy. I'm still not sure of my exact direction, but I love helping people and have time to think about it.
