Thankful

As a front line Social Worker with over 20 years experience in foster care and child protective services I have found this podcast to be realistic, entertaining, and full of helpful information. I have enjoyed learning about the councils and practices of the UK as an American. There is only one thing that would make it better but not sure how it would work or if possible but, to be able to call in and make comments during the show. There were so many times I reached for my phone today as I listened to SWT & Matt discuss if SWs should have their lives together.

Matt I’d love for a book club to be started with both fiction and nonfiction.

SWT please know you are making a difference. Please thank your family for lending you to all of us.

Just Getting Started

I am enjoying this podcast. I am a forty three year old social work student. I have enjoyed listening to caring professionals already in the field. Also their humor and honesty make me think I could gladly share a pint with them.

Digging Your Appoach

Hey there- I’m currently an child welfare social worker in Frederick, Maryland (US). I mainly work with children and families who are working towards adoption, but previously I was a CPS worker. I’ve been doing this job for almost 5 years and have my LCSW-C. I’ve been listening to this podcast for a few months and I enjoy it so much. It helps me feel connected to other workers who struggle with similar work and personal issues. Thank you for providing such a great platform to share info and perspective on child welfare social work. It’s a unique career field and I’m happy to have a go to podcast to listen about all aspects of this job!!! Rock on 👍
