Individuals who help people function as best they can in their environment, deal with their relationships and solve personal and family problems. Social workers often see clients who face a life-threatening disease or a variety of social problems which may include inadequate housing, unemployment, lack of job skills, financial distress, serious illness or disability, substance abuse, unwanted pregnancy or anti-social behavior. Social workers also assist families that have serious domestic conflicts including those involving child or spousal abuse; provide services for prison inmates, parolees, probationers and their families; help workers cope with job-related pressures or with personal problems that affect the quality of their work; advise elderly people or family members about their choices in areas such as housing, transportation and long-term care; coordinate and monitor services for older adults; and run support groups for family caregivers or for the adult children of aging parents.
