Celebrating National Social Work Month 2018
Every March, we are all reminded to take some time to recognize the social workers we know and work alongside, to reflect on their contribution to our collective goals and progress, and celebrate the tireless and profound difference that they make in the world. For 2018, the National Association of Social Workers has proclaimed the theme of this month to be “Social Workers: Leaders. Advocates. Champions.” As we know our social workers encompass these different roles and more each day, MedOptions is proud to honor the dedicated professionals within our own ranks.
Leaders are individuals who stand up to guide the way, contribute to decision-making, and step in to provide direction. Advocates take on a particular cause, policy, or voice that might otherwise go unheard and unheeded. And champions fight.
At MedOptions, our licensed clinical social workers have advanced degrees and training. They fight for client’s recovery by providing individual and group psychotherapy, guiding residents towards attainable and empowering treatment goals. They also work with facility staff to develop behavioral management plans, leading the way and demonstrating the difference that can be reached with determination and passion.
This month, we encourage an honest reflection on the difference that each social worker makes, not only in our own ranks and midst, but throughout the world. Happy Social Work Month! Check back for more articles as we continue to celebrate and highlight this profession all month.
