Civilian Social Work: Serving the Military and Veteran Populations
Savitsky, Laura; Illingworth, Maria; DuLaney, Megan
Social Work, v54 n4 p327-339 2009
This article discusses social work practice areas for civilian social workers who provide services to military service members, veterans, and their families. These practice areas include education, child welfare, domestic violence, mental health, health care, substance abuse, and criminal justice. The authors examine the impact of the contemporary military lifestyle and current military operations on service members and their families in the context of these practice areas, with the goal of compelling civilian social workers to acknowledge their responsibility to competently serve military and veteran clients.
