    I probably shouldn't answer this question, because I am NOT a social worker.  I do KNOW several of them and from my point of view, I would say......compassion, patience and in a lot of positions, a willingness to require NO THANKS at all.  (It is a job that I could not do...ever.)

    Advocate for individual clients or the community on identified problems.


    • Serve as a broker by connecting individual with resources.


    • Create and maintain professional helping relationships.


    • Improve problem-solving, coping, and development capacities of all people.


    • Be able to engage and communicate with diverse population and groups of all sizes.


    • Have a knowledge and understanding of human relationships.


    • Provide services to not only support change in the individual but also in his/her environment as well
