The Professional Social Worker in a Bureaucracy
Wasserman, Harry
Social Work, 16, 1, 89-95, Jan '71
In this article the author describes how the bureaucratic structure of a large public agency manipulates the professional social workers to preserve the status quo. Struggling on behalf of his clients from a position of powerlessness, the social worker, burdened by large caseloads and structural restraints, is often driven from meaningful contacts with his clients through compulsive defending behavior.
