One of the major frustrations that social care workers experience is the lack of intervention responses that can used to resolve the client’s difficulties or at least improve their situation.
Achieving a social work outcome is largely determined by successfully completing a sequence of stages. If there is a missing link in the process, like the absence of intervention techniques, then it’s unlikely the social work goal will be completed. As a result, this lack of intervention responses reduces the effectiveness of our work to its lowest common denominator.
Therefore, a major drive of the Academy is to encourage and facilitate the development of a range of intervention techniques for practitioners.
