Article Excerpt: Hidden Insides: The Voices of the Kids We Know
by Seth Rockman, LMSW
 
Editor’s Note: The following is an excerpt from an article from the Winter 2011 issue of THE NEW SOCIAL WORKER. Read the full article at:
 
I am a high school social worker in a large, comprehensive Brooklyn, NY high school. Every day, for many years, much like many of you, I observe, I listen, I feel, and I try. And then I go home, always seeking balance. Our work is exhausting, and the kids and parents provoke in us so many emotions, but the call to help never stops ringing. And we keep answering that call, though often without answers. The following are the words and sentiments I’ve been hearing from kids over the years. Their words come to us through their expressions and actions as much as from their mouths, but whatever form they come to us in, our kids, clients, and students need us to hear them.
Imagine the face and voice of a young person you care about.

*********

You look at us and you don't understand us even though you were once us. We cut ourselves more than you think, we think about suicide more than you know, and labeling us angry is more convenient to you than it is an accurate assessment of who we are and why we do what we do. We have sex before we’re ready, we fight too often, we disrupt classrooms because we doubt our own intelligence, we make excuses more than we work hard, we’ll use your pity to our advantage, we abuse alcohol and drugs, and we’re falling behind at school. We put on shows of confidence and conviction, and you wonder how it is that we don’t make better decisions. We find ways to both disappoint you and inspire you, and just when you think we’ve outgrown bad habits or juvenile ways, we sneak in another mistake and make a decision that to anyone other than ourselves seems completely irrational.
We’re a beautiful collection of ignorance and insight that confounds parents, psychologists, sociologists, and teachers alike...and what’s even more fascinating is that we confound ourselves even more than we do you. It’s not that we do any of what we do because of some master plan. It’s simply that from moment to moment, an emotion, a craving, or a need drives a particular behavior. We are the beautiful who feel ugly, the thin who feel fat, the bullies who are afraid, the intelligent who feel inadequate, the popular who feel alone, the black who feel too dark, the white who feel too pale, the defiant who feel powerless, the achievers who feel lost, the artistic who feel crazy, the promiscuous who feel unloved, the risky who feel overwhelmed, and we are the ones who smile and scream and laugh and yell...yet feel invisible. We wish these weren’t many of our truths, and we know you’d much rather read of our achievements and happiness…but we just can’t afford to have you kept in the dark anymore about how we’re hurting and what we need.
We’re asking for more humility. We’re demanding more listening and less lecturing. We’re asking for more transparency and less pity, and we’re begging that you find thoughtful, empowering ways to hold us accountable for the damage we are causing to ourselves and to others. We ask that you try harder to make your efforts with us about us, and not your own needs to feel intelligent, wise, powerful, or in charge. We ask that you care less about avoiding looking foolish and more about role-modeling real confidence. Give us consequences if we earn them and don’t give in to our guilt provoking tactics. Your lower expectations of us are crushing our spirits and work ethic, and they’re keeping us from developing the fortitude we need to push through the inevitable hardships and challenges that come with being human. We need to feel your faith in us that we can push beyond our traumas, and we need you to partner with us more than you try to fix us. We’re asking that you help us cultivate grace, so that we no longer feel the urges to run from our feelings, or numb them with substances and activities that can diminish our futures.

How I Struggled to Be a Social Worker Again
 
by Maria Victoria Esguerra Manlutac, RSW,MSSW
 
I am a social worker! These are the words I longed to utter after being away from the profession for almost twenty years.
 
I am Maria Victoria Esguerra Manlutac, Marivic for short. I am from Tarlac City Philippines. I spent my elementary and high school days at the College of the Holy Spirit Tarlac City, my BS social work education at Saint Louis University Baguio City, my master's degree in social work at the Philippines Women’s University, Manila, and I am now pursuing my doctorate degree in social development at the same school.
 
Right after graduating from college and while waiting for the result of my licensure exam in 1982, I worked with the Department of Social Welfare and Development, Tarlac City Philippines, as a volunteer. After passing the board in the same year, I was hired as a youth development worker, and then eventually as a social worker.
 
In 1985, I got married to my loving husband Ricky, a publisher/editor, and became a full-time wife and mother to my three boys. At the same time, I managed our family business during my free time. I can honestly say that these were happiest years of my life, until my children were in high school, they could do things on their own, and somehow they didn't need my constant attention anymore. I felt the emptiness, and I asked myself: what is really my purpose in life? My passion of being a social worker lingered on me… Somehow I missed the profession.
 
In March of 2005, when private hospitals in the province of Tarlac Philippines were required to hire social workers for licensing purposes, I was hired as a medical social worker in a tertiary private hospital in Tarlac City without much ado. There was no social service department, there were no funds, and the social work profession was not understood. The common notion of social workers to give dole outs or charity only was the main thing that came to people’s minds. I was shocked and was faced with a huge responsibility of how to introduce the profession, considering I hadn't been a social worker for a long time, much less a medical social worker. I really had a hard time at first in explaining to people about my profession, and some even looked down asking, “Is social work a profession?” The management asked me to be assigned in different units like the admitting, credit, and collection sections, which I humbly turned down. For me, it is a big insult to our profession to be called a social worker if we don’t function as social workers. Of course, it was a big risk on my part, because I hadn’t worked for so long, and the risk of losing the job daunted me. But I managed and had the courage to explain myself and fight for what I know is right and that is to assert my real role as a medical social worker.
 
I prayed hard and contemplated on my next move just to make my presence as a medical social worker felt, and at the same time to make social work visible in the hospital. I wrote a letter to our respected president/ medical director explaining my real role and the essence of a social worker. We had several meetings with the different officers of the hospital, fighting for what I know should be the main function of a social worker and not just for licensing/accreditation purposes. At first, they were adamant to listen to my plea, what more to grant my request. I requested my own office complete with facilities and a staff, which I think is appropriate for a medical social worker. I even based my master's thesis on the real essence of social workers in private hospitals just to justify that social workers should not be hired just for licensing purposes, but that they can contribute to patients and their families, thus an asset to the hospital, as well. In my thesis, I emphasized that by using social work principles, medical social workers are a big help to troubled patients and their families.
 
In my honest opinion, and based on my experience, to be a real social worker, you should be loved and respected not only by people you work with, but by your superiors, as well. Your attitude and behavior should coincide with the things you say, because our main tool is our conscious use of ourselves. Your values should be beyond question. As social workers, you should work not only based on your knowledge, but most importantly, work from the heart. For me, it is not only the services you extend to your clients, but how these services are delivered, that matters most, and this makes us different from other professions. It is not only the quantity of service, but the quality of your service that counts. We are here to help clients help themselves, and that is the real essence of social work. Looking at these perspectives awakens lots of people, including my superiors.
 
In October 2005, after almost seven months of struggling, constant prodding, and proving, finally the management listened and realized my real role and saw the importance of a medical social worker. My office was built, complete with facilities and a staff. Oh, my heart jumped with joy as I entered my new office. Now I can say that… indeed I am a social worker at last.
 
As a medical social worker, which I can now proudly say that I am, these are my advocacies, I requested a group of doctors to give free professional services to poor patients. I even have my own social fund, which I requested from generous donors. I formulated my own programs and services, as well as the vision and mission of my own department.
 
Now people always look for the medical social worker/social work department every time they encounter difficulties, not only financially, but in all aspects of their lives. There are also students who use our department as their training ground for their field practice.
 
I am thankful to my superiors for giving me a chance to prove my worth as a social worker. I can say that I am truly blessed for having the best of both worlds. I became a full-time wife and mother during my children’s growing up years, and now I am thankful for a second chance to be a social worker… a medical social worker, at that.
 
It is indeed with great pride and joy that I am called a social worker once again, and it is worth the fight.

HHS Announces Nation’s New Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Agenda

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recently unveiled Healthy People 2020, the nation’s new 10-year goals and objectives for health promotion and disease prevention, and “myHealthyPeople,” a new challenge for technology application developers.

For the past 30 years, Healthy People has been committed to improving the quality of our Nation’s health by producing a framework for public health prevention priorities and actions.

The launch of Healthy People 2020 comes at a critical time,” said HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. “Our challenge and opportunity is to avoid preventable diseases from occurring in the first place.”

Chronic diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, are responsible for seven out of every 10 deaths among Americans each year and account for 75 percent of the nation’s health spending. Many of the risk factors that contribute to the development of these diseases are preventable.

Too many people are not reaching their full potential for health because of preventable conditions,” said Assistant Secretary for Health Howard K. Koh, M.D., M.P.H. “Healthy People is the nation’s roadmap and compass for better health, providing our society a vision for improving both the quantity and quality of life for all Americans.”

Healthy People 2020 is the product of an extensive stakeholder feedback process that is unparalleled in government and health. It integrates input from public health and prevention experts, a wide range of federal, state and local government officials, a consortium of more than 2,000 organizations, and perhaps most importantly, the public. A number of new topic areas are included in the new initiative, including:

Adolescent Health
Blood Disorders and Blood Safety
Dementias, including Alzheimer’s Disease
Early and Middle Childhood
Genomics
Global Health
Health-Related Quality of Life and Well-Being
Healthcare-Associated Infections
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Health
Older Adults
Preparedness
Sleep Health
Social Determinants of Health

HHS is also launching a newly redesigned Healthy People Web site that allows users to tailor information to their needs and explore evidence-based resources for implementation. The Web site is located at: www.healthypeople.gov. For more information about myHealthyPeople, go to www.challenge.gov/
