Resident Guests: Social Workers in Host Settings.
Dane, Barbara Oberhofer; Simon, Barbara L.
Social Work, v36 n3 p208-13 May 1991
Notes that social workers often work in host settings, arenas that are defined and dominated by non-social workers. Identifies four predictable problems that accompany social workers' presence as resident guests within host settings: value discrepancies between hosts and guests; marginality of social workers' token status; devaluing of social work as women's work; and role ambiguity and role strain.
