Social Work Students' Attitudes about Working with Involuntary Clients
Pope, Natalie D.; Kang, Byungdeok
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v31 n4 p442-456 2011
Social workers employed in areas such as public child welfare, substance abuse, and corrections often provide services to involuntary clients. These individuals do not seek social work services on their own volition and may be actively opposed to the services they are receiving. This study explores social work students' attitudes about working with involuntary clients. The article is based on a cross-sectional survey of social work students (N = 107) at a large Southeastern university. Participants answered questions regarding their experience, knowledge, and attitudes about involuntary clients. Findings and implications for social work education and practice are discussed. (Contains 6 tables.)
