The Dual Advocate

During the past eleven years since entering the field of social work, I have learned that this profession to which I have I felt a strong call has come to mean many things, requiring multiple hats, and a broad skillset.  And these skills required for social work, perhaps like anything else, need to be honed over time, throughout one’s career.  Although I consider myself still quite young in the profession, especially if I consider the big–picture–grand scheme of things, I have become pretty confident that paramount among the skills of social work is the role related to advocacy.
