The problem I always had with social work - although I readily admit that it is needed in some cases in society - was that terms like "intervention" could be negatively interpreted as "butting in". I think that in a case in which children are being beaten (I mean ... really beaten), for instance, the state should intervene. But this has been extended to so much more, and so much more nonsense.And when I read cases like the ones in Florida in which the case worker simply forged her travel sheets - claiming to visit families she never did - and a little girl turned up dead - I wonder about the level of competency in those organizations.
Funny how it was feminism that was one of the strongest supporters of cps. Seems to be working against women now doesn't it? :?
