Beyond Standard Practice: Social Work and the Media
By Caitlin Moe, BSW

(Editor's Note: This article is excerpted from the Spring 2008 issue of THE NEW SOCIAL WORKER. See our Web site to read the full article.)

As a young social worker, I entered the field knowing I wanted to help people for a living, but not knowing in what capacity I wanted to do it. I also have an interest in addiction. I was pretty sure I wanted to work in a substance abuse related profession, and after graduating with a BSW, I did just that. I was hired right out of school and spent a year working at a residential treatment center for chemically dependent teens. The work was tough and intensive-each resident had his or her own issues and usually was not there voluntarily. I remember working one-on-one with clients and putting a lot of time and effort into each. I felt as if I passed along a lot of knowledge and tools and, in return, learned how to be a better social worker.

The relationships were rewarding for me in many ways and hopefully for my clients, as well. However, the work was challenging, and I could barely afford to pay rent and bills on my salary. Although the work was without a doubt rewarding, I could not help but think on a grander scale. There had to be other ways of keeping kids off of drugs in the first place-before they got to this point.

After getting mildly burned out after only a year of intervention work, I was scared and worried that I had chosen the wrong profession. I struggled with the idea that maybe I just couldn't hack it in social work. I refused to let this get me down and realized that the problem was not me or social work as a profession-simply that a traditional social work job was not for me.

There had to be something new, different, and innovative-a way to help people on a larger scale. Almost fatefully, as I was headed back to school toward an MSW-hoping to find my passion and a livable salary in social work-I was asked to help out with a newly formed "experiment in prevention" called the Montana Meth Project. As a former and recovering meth addict, I was invited to share my story as part of one of the first radio ads.

Social Workers: Help Stop Domestic Violence
New research reveals something you may be missing

The National Institute of Justice found that social workers who investigate child abuse allegations could have a huge impact on helping women who are domestic violence victims.

A recent study found that child maltreatment and violence against women frequently occur together, but social workers who focus on child welfare often fail to detect or report the violence affecting adults.

The researchers interviewed more than 3,000 women who had been in contact with child welfare agencies because of allegations of child abuse or neglect. The women were the children's primary female caregivers; most were mothers or stepmothers.

Some 29 percent of the women had experienced domestic violence in the preceding year, yet child welfare workers reported domestic violence in only 12 percent of the households.

The study suggests that many child welfare agencies do not routinely ask about domestic violence, or perhaps do not get accurate information when they do ask about it. As a result, many women affected by domestic violence were not referred to domestic violence services following the child maltreatment investigation.

When child welfare workers did identify the domestic violence, the picture was much brighter. About 60 percent of the women identified as domestic violence victims were referred to agencies that could help them. Of these, 83 percent eventually received services.

The study suggests that closer coordination between child welfare agencies and domestic violence agencies, including joint training, could benefit many women.

The National Institute of Justice is the research component of the U.S. Department of Justice's Office of Justice Programs. The full report is available at http://www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/nij/grants/213503.pdf

Americans Called on to "Change a Lifetime" for Over Half a Million U.S. Youth in Foster Care
May is National Foster Care Month; Partnership Marks "20 Years of Caring"

More than 513,000 American children are in foster care because their own families are in crisis and unable to provide for their essential well-being. Like all young people, youth in foster care deserve and benefit from enduring, positive relationships with caring adults. Now is the time to get involved.

This May, National Foster Care Month will serve as a platform for connecting more of these vulnerable children with concerned, nurturing adults. Join America's leading child welfare agencies, advocates, experts, and more than 12 million foster care alumni as they come together to address the needs of young people in foster care. Their message is simple: No matter how much time you have to give, you have the power to do something positive that will "Change a Lifetime" for a young person in foster care.

Many of these formerly abused or neglected children and teens will either safely reunite with their parents, be cared for by relatives, or be adopted by loving families. But others are less fortunate. Every year, more than 20,000 older youth "age out" of foster care and are left alone to face life's challenges. No matter their age, all young people in foster care need a meaningful connection to a caring adult who becomes a supportive and lasting presence in their lives. Research shows that foster care alumni are far more likely than their peers in the general population to endure homelessness, poverty, compromised health, unemployment, incarceration, and other adversities after they leave the foster care system.

Across the nation, caring individuals are helping foster children build brighter futures by serving as their foster parents, relative caregivers, mentors, advocates, social workers, and volunteers. But much more help is needed.
If nothing changes by the year 2020:

* Nearly 14 million children will be confirmed as victims of child abuse and neglect;
* 22,500 children will die of abuse or neglect, most before their fifth birthday;
* 9,000,000 more children will experience the foster care system;
* More than 300,000 children will age out of the foster care system, most with inadequate support to build successful adult lives; and,
* 99,000 former foster youth, who aged out of the system, can expect to experience homelessness.

The National Foster Care Month campaign is presented by 17 of the nation's foremost child welfare organizations and is led by Casey Family Programs. For more information about National Foster Care Month, planned community events, and the many ways in which you can make a lasting difference for America's children and youth in foster care, visit http://www.fostercaremonth.org or call 888-799-KIDS (5437).

National Foster Care Month is a partnership of Casey Family Programs; the Annie E. Casey Foundation/Casey Family Services; Black Administrators in Child Welfare; Children's Bureau, Administration for Children and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; Child Welfare League of America; Foster Care Alumni of America; FosterClub, Jim Casey Youth Opportunities Initiative; APHSA/National Association of Public Child Welfare Administrators; National Association of Social Workers; National Association of State Foster Care Managers; National CASA; National Foster Care Coalition; the National Foster Parent Association; National Indian Child Welfare Association; and the National Resource Center for Family-Centered Practice and Permanency Planning at the Hunter College School of Social Work, a Service of the Children's Bureau.

National Day to Prevent Teen Pregnancy

Hundreds of thousands of teens nationwide were expected to participate in the seventh annual National Day to Prevent Teen Pregnancy on May 7, 2008. The purpose of the National Day was to focus the attention of teens on the importance of avoiding too-early pregnancy and parenthood through an interactive online quiz.

On the National Day, teens nationwide were asked to go to The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy's new teen website -- StayTeen.org -- and take a short, scenario-based quiz (available in English and Spanish). The quiz challenges young people to consider what they would do in a number of sexual situations. In addition to the National Day Quiz, The National Campaign also offered an online application that allows teens to add the National Day Quiz to their profiles on Web sites like MySpace and Facebook and an online video contest for teens at StayTeen.org.

The message of the National Day was straightforward: Sex has consequences. The online quiz delivers this message directly to teens and challenges them to think carefully about what they might do "in the moment."
Despite significant reductions in the teen pregnancy and birth rates since the early 1990s, 30 percent of teen girls become pregnant at least once before age 20, and the vast majority (82 percent) of teen pregnancies are unintended.
"After 15 years of steady decline, the teen birth rate increased slightly between 2005 and 2006," said Sarah Brown, Chief Executive Officer of The National Campaign. "Clearly, a renewed focus on preventing teen pregnancy is needed and we hope that -- in some modest way- - the quiz will help teens think carefully about sex and contraception, the possibility of pregnancy, and the lifelong challenges of being a parent."

Social Development and Transition: Paths for Global-Local Partnership
Asia-Pacific Branch Conference, Kathmandu, Nepal
November 26-28, 2008

ICSD AP Branch is committed to building social work and social development education, research, and practice in the region. As part of this commitment, it has initiated the ICSD AP Branch book project to build a social work and social development library for Nepal.

The project aims to:

* Provide access to books for those studying social work and social development
* Promote social work and social development education, research, and practice in Nepal
* Develop social work and social development professions.

Nepal is one of the least developed and land-locked countries in the world. It has three schools of social work. The schools and their students would appreciate some concrete assistance. The conference organizing committee in consultation with Nepalese members has decided to ask social workers and social development practitioners to support the development of a shared library.

A list of the books being donated will be on the following Web sites:

http://asia-pacific.icsd.info/asia/icsdasia.htm
http://www.nepalschoolofsocialwork.org/webpages/home.php

All you need to do is send an e-mail to losburn@csu.edu.au and indicate the text you wish to donate. Your offer
will be checked against the list to ensure there are no duplications. You then post the book (or ask your
book seller to do this) to the conference organizers in Nepal. On receipt of the book, you will be sent a formal
acknowledgement, and your details will appear on the book plate.

You may take the books with you to the conference in Kathmandu, November 26-28, 2008, or send them to:

Kites for Kids at the Carnegie Science Center Reaches Goal of 5,000 Kites!

More than 5,000 kites were displayed at the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh, PA as a tribute to the region's abused children recently as part of Kites for Kids, an event presented by KidsVoice, a non profit agency that fights for the rights of abused and neglected children. As a show of support, the community was asked to bring a kite in with them that weekend to be displayed along with the kites of abused children that were already on display at the Science Center.

Kites for Kids took place the weekend of April 26 & 27 at the Carnegie Science Center. The event featured live entertainment, kite flying, and educational programs centered around the science of flight.

In addition to booths presented by KidsVoice, Carnegie Science Center, and Fly Pittsburgh Kite Club, other exhibitors included: Comcast; Every Child, Inc.; Highmark; Miss Pennsylvania Scholarship Organization; Pittsburgh International Children's Theater; and UPMC Health Plan.

A KidsVoice stage featured entertainment by local young performers.

KidsVoice is a non-profit agency that advocates in court and in the community for abused and neglected children, providing a voice of hope and advocacy for children who can't always speak for themselves. KidsVoice is currently celebrating it 100th anniversary.
