Is CBS Miami certain that the title social worker applies in the case of the malnourished child?
For years I’ve listed to the media refer to case workers, assistant social workers, etc., as social workers. When I look deeper into the piece in questions, I usually find that the individual who who was responsible for handling a case poorly was not an actual social worker, but someone who did some work that might be considered social work. To be a social worker one must have either an advance degree such as a masters, or a terminal degree such as a doctorate in social work (PhD or DSW). So, please ascertain that the person who is being accused of poor social work practice actually is a social worker before saying so on your program.
