Rural social workers

Rural social workers

Rural social workers can find themselves faced with client(s)or populations of clients with presenting problems requiring a level of care or intervention that is not readily available in the rural community. Social work practice requires us to have effective assessment skills but also the capacity to accurately identify an area of need that is not being met. To that end, identify a problem that a rural social worker may encounter with a client(s) and discuss it in detail. What do you think causes the problem that you have identified? How is the problem currently addressed in your community?

Or include how it is not addressed. What are the implications for social work practice with client populations who may encounter this issue? Develop an approach to ameliorate that problem. How would you go about implementing this plan or approach? Who are the identified stakeholders in this plan or process? How will you obtain support to see your plan through? Please utilize at least three professional journal articles to support your paper and your ideas.
