"The man should not be working with people who are suffering through anything. He is a sick man, who tries to make you feel more broken than you actually feel. He used demeaning words such as "whacked" and "out of control". Said i would fail in my business. Used sexually derogatory terms completely inappropriate and unexpected from a licensed professional. He was trying to control my thoughts by not letting me speak, he would interject constantly that i was making no sense and that i was disassociated and completely out of control. He bashed other therapists, was discrimanatory towards my profession, and told me things like i should have " beat my girlfriend" to try and be funny. He than proceeded to throw me out of his office the second visit claiming i was worse than the first visit and that i again was all over the place. Commented that he runs an upper middle class practice and didnt have time for people like me.
This man should not be working with anyone, let alone people in vulnerable mental states, as i believe one day he will cause someone to do something that cannot be undone.
Strongly influenced by the concepts of human rights and social justice, social workers are professionals that help vulnerable individuals, families, and groups in need. Social work can include a variety of different jobs or careers, but in essence it involves meeting people in their home environment, identifying the issues that are causing social problems for them, and connecting them with the right resources to improve their well-being.
Social workers may work for organizations, in hospitals, in schools, for the government, at senior centers, in private practice, or in any number of public or private institutions. Many social workers choose to work with specific populations, such as children, the elderly, or the poor. Often, social work is about creating healthy communities in order to improve the lives of all people.
Some of the issues that social workers may come up against in their profession include:
Illness and lack of access to healthcare
Drug and alcohol addiction
Death and grief
Social workers are advocates for social change. They educate clients to prevent problems from occurring or worsening. They empower others to develop to their full potential.
