The Hidden Face of Social Workers


2014-0803 Social Worker



When Squeak McPip shared her comment about a different post, she unintentionally gave me the idea for this post. I did not create either picture in this post and neither did she.





The contribution of Squeak McPip is that she implied social workers are undervalued and underutilized. In other words, social workers are essentially hidden from our post-injury world. Social workers may have less face time with patients than nurses, but they are very important to the recovery process. My social worker answered questions the doctors and nurses would not share. My social worker connected me to resources the doctors and nurses did not know. My social worker followed up with me several times after I was discharged from the hospital.

Let’s show our virtual support for social workers by finding their faces in the following picture. Every face you find belongs to a social worker. How many faces do you see in the following picture?

Thanks to Squeak McPip whose comment about a different post gave me the idea for this post; Google for helping me find the pictures I used; and all the other people who, directly or indirectly, made it possible for me to include the pictures or text I used in this post.
