Casework Objective of Help with Psychiatrically Disturbed Persons
This piece explores counseling clients with psychiatric problems. More specifically, it discusses situations where the client is suffering acute emotional disturbance, yet resists psychiatric treatment and projects the role of the psychiatrist on to the social worker. The author highlights a two-step process of helping the client to get well, which begins first with the casework service which helps the client overcome the fear and resistance that perhaps has grown out of his or her inner psychological problem, as well as the social cultural attitude; and a second step of actual psychiatric treatment of the client's emotional illness.
