Let’s keep Social Work Month rolling with this in-depth look at one social worker’s unique experiences with a multi-agency approach to social work.
Sam Fugill spent most of her career working on teams of social workers, but she currently finds herself in a completely different situation. Her team includes mental health nurses, Speech-Language Pathologists, teachers, and various types of support staff.
“My new team embodies the multi-agency mantra of contemporary social work,” says Fugill. “With a whole range of professionals in the same room, the organizational barriers we so often rail against fall away. It is refreshing to work somewhere you can get specialist advice from a colleague in another field just by walking across the office.”
Check out Fugill’s full story on her blog, and explore more benefits of the multi-agency approach to social work.
