The TAO of Social Work

FEAR is the social worker’s most formidable enemy. Vulnerable people at risk are the social worker’s constituents, and vulnerable people at risk are, of course, full of fear. Persistent fear always morphs into anger setting up a self-destructive spiral in the vulnerable. Whether working with a population of addicts, immigrants, children at risk, or the elderly, helping clients overcome fear is the first job of the social worker.

No Respect

Like Rodney Dangerfield, millennials get no respect. It’s a stereotype you’re probably all too familiar with: the “spoiled, narcissistic millennial.” When perpetuated, it leads to some sweeping generalizations about the work ethic, mindset, and values of millennials. They are discounted as the entitled generation, criticized for never leaving home, playing electronic games, taking no interest in anything outside themselves, having no manners, and basically thinking they are not compelled to do anything.

In a recent Time magazine article, author Joel Stein wrote: “In the U.S., millennials are the children of baby boomers, who are also known as the Me Generation, who then produced the Me Me Me Generation, whose selfishness technology has only exacerbated.” Stein went on to assert that “this new Me Me Me Generation has become damaged due to an overdose of self-esteem.”
