thinking about a career in social work? There’s much to consider. The day-to-day work that social workers perform is highly rewarding, but it’s also emotionally taxing. The path to becoming a social worker is just as demanding. One minute, you’re in the classroom immersed in the required curriculum; the next, you’re working in your field placement helping a hospice patient navigate end-of-life decisions. Intense? Yes. So, how can you know whether or not you have the temperament to endure as a social worker? Or whether you will enjoy the profession once you have cleared all the hurdles necessary to earn your license?
As in many professions, on-the-job learning is most effective, but what about those who aren’t in the field yet? The next best thing is to learn from those who have spent a lifetime as social workers. Fortunately, many of them have written excellent books that reveal all aspects of this rich, challenging, and extremely rewarding profession.
