OnPoint on WACH FOX: Why social work is important in today's world
COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) -- March is National Professional Social Work Month.
The annual observance provides an opportunity for social workers across the country and their allies to turn the spotlight on the profession and highlight the important contributions they make to society.
Social work is an important profession. Social workers help people solve and cope with problems in their everyday lives.
In fact, social work is one of the more stable and recession-proof professions there is, and the job outlook for social workers is on the upswing.
Whether it’s healthcare social workers, social workers in gerontology, schools, substance abuse centers, child & family welfare-social workers prove invaluable to individuals and families often when they are most vulnerable.
