The Complexities of the Juvenile Justice System and Case Management

Posted by GVT Admin on Feb 9, 2023 10:45:00 AM

On any given day, an estimated 60,000 youths under the age of 18 are incarcerated in an American jail. Given that children under the age of 18 account for approximately 22 percent of the US population, this figure is a concerning reflection of the state of the American juvenile justice system.
However, believe it or not. Today's situation is vastly improved over yesterdays. Thanks in part to social service organizations that have long advocated for institutional training of youth rather than confinement to reduce juvenile crime rates.

Here are some of the complexities of the country's juvenile justice system, as well as how it has evolved over time, as well as some areas where non-profit intervention is still needed.

Opioid Addiction Is Here to Stay

Posted by GVT Admin on Feb 1, 2023 10:45:00 AM

“Opioid addiction is here to stay,” said a social work professor we recently interviewed. “But as long as we turn away from the horrors of this widespread addiction and choose to remain in denial, we will not make a concerted effort to widely administer treatment. The pharmaceutical industry has already created both long term treatments and emergency life-saving medications that are simply not being administered on a wide enough scale. I believe that a nationwide effort to make these medications available to anyone trapped in this particular substance abuse disorder should be a number-one priority for the social work profession at large.”

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the demographics and logistics of the Social Work profession have shifted dramatically. Social workers are on the move, and telehealth has become ubiquitous. Social workers, however, are finding it more problematic than they had imagined moving from state to state. With ten years’ experience and a graduate degree from a major university they expected to simply fill out some kind of “transfer form” to get re-licensed in the state they were relocating to.

Posted by GVT Admin on Jan 19, 2023 10:27:13 AM

According to surveys, in the first half of 2022, approximately 53 million companies and individuals were victims of successful cyberattacks and data breaches.

This blog discusses how to effectively improve cybersecurity in non-profits.
