Used & Abused: Something for Nothing

Happy Valentine’s Day to all of the human/social services workers!  Hopefully you will take the opportunity this weekend to care for you and your loved ones in that special way in which most of you care for your clinical families and communities.  This is a time to reflect on the generosity that should flow in abundance from within and come back renewed and replenished from our long weekend!

Join me next week as we continue our probe into the Histrionics of Social Services Delivery. As such, our next feature will be our Used & Abused Series:  Something for Nothing.   I’ll be focusing on social service patterns, policies and systemic engagements that enable our families and individuals instead of strengthen them.  In addition, we’ll look at some concrete ways in which residents and families can obtain services that may promote self-advocacy, self-suffiency and growth.  Hope you will contribute, inquire and enjoy.  Peace and Blessings!
