In Israel "social" workers team up with psychs, and one of their principal crimes is taking children away from their parents, with no justification. The parents then often find it impossible to get their children back. This is a phenomenon, largely, of the last decade, and it enjoys the support of the "family" courts.
In every country there should be as many social workers as there are standing army and police officers.
Just like police officers they should patrol the streets looking to help people.
Some people might suggest that there is evidence that the more social workers you have, the more social problems you have.
Some people might suggest that both this post and the one it quotes had better come up with a reference if the posters want to avoid dogmatic name-calling.
Yes, brother, can,t agree with you more!!
The heavely and divine wisdom!!
