Intern with Child Protection Services

I'm glad I found this article since I'm experiencing the same issues with the government agency I'm working with. As an intern and a foundation student in a MSW program, I was not sure how to put the situation in perspective. The social workers I work with are definitely burned out due to the amount of case load and high demands from the bureaucratic and legal process involved in child protection. This article gave me a better understanding of the situation. I've noticed how the boundaries with the client families have become so rigid, and I was disappointed to observe the social workers as a law enforcement officer doing investigative work rather than a professional providing support to preserve families involved in child abuse and neglect. Thanks for this timely article. I think it should be read by all social workers working in local governments.
