I worked as a child welfare supervisor with the state of Florida and now I work as a Facilitator in the state of California providing wraparound services for families in need. I always believed that prevention is more beneficial than treatment is, and prevention doesn’t have to be expensive. I mean, educating the children about social issues such as DV, child abuse, family values, etc just when the children start middle school or earlier than that ,could make a world of difference. Many people involved in situations were abuse occur do not know better and we are quickly to judge them base in our own values. Unfortunately, many services that are available to them, don’t provide for what they really need and then the cycle continues. Teaching Social Psychology, could do wonders in high school. Learning about how people interact, what group influence does to people, etc, would be so helpful. This class could be taught by students of any social services degree and could count toward their practicum. An hour a week, teaching, helping, learning, growing.
