When my father died and I needed support, my social worker friend went out drinking ("processing") with her other social worker friends, then completely broke contact until she felt I was well enough not to try and talk about it anymore.

A person who can handle the most mentally draining times, again and again, but continue to wake up feeling driven to serve. These situations include reporting the abuse of the elderly, listening to a former alcoholic/drug addict admit to relapse, witnessing a child have their life beat out of them, seeing first hand the way mental abuse can hurt an individual, feeding children who have had nothing to eat for days, helping a family deal with a suicide of a loved one, find a home for an elderly parent when their family can’t handle them anymore, ensuring the mentally take their medications daily so they don’t end up re-committed into the hospital for erratic behavior and caring for the children who have no one to care for them.

The man or woman who whenever a movie is made about a mental hospital is always portrayed as a hero. In those movies they play the role of the tireless defender of the mentally ill who fights against the system. In real life they are the ones who run the mental hospitals therefore they are the system. Movies are like this because most writers of these scripts have been patients at mental hospitals. Social workers readily accept credit for the good and are even better at putting the blame for bad situations off on the Doctors, nurses, aides, and that ambiguous entity called "The team."
Sally the the social worker ordered Adam the aide to take Mary the mental patient's personal radio away from her because she only earned four stars out of five in Sally's therapy group. Adam takes the radio. Mary the mental patient complains to Sally the social worker about Adam the aide taking her radio. Sally tells Mary she has "No clue" why Adam did that. Mary assaults Adam with a heavy object causing him permanent brain damage. Mary then files abuse and neglect charges against Adam. Sally and Mary both testify against him and he is fired. The local newspaper hears of this and does a story that portrays Sally as a hero and Mary as the heroic victim. The team of social workers who run the institution see to it that Adam gets denied both medical care and unemployment benefits. Adam tries fighting them in court but with brain damage he can't think clearly and neglects his personal appearance. The jury at the trial had all seen a movie the previous night about a mental hospital where the aides were bullies, the patients were victims, and the social workers were heros. Adam does 3 months in jail for his supposed assault against mary and now roams the streets homeless. Sally gets a big promotion. Mary wins a lawsuit against the mental institution and was filthy rich for a short time. A well meaning but incompetent social worker mismanaged her funds.

Often a gay man, but it could be anyone who appears blandly conservative him or herself, but who is usually turned on by rough looking people who stink of trouble.

1. A person who works with at-risk populations.

Some who work in this field are wounded healers, some people are burnt out, but many realize the gravity of the work they perform and have a great deal of empathy and compassion for the people they serve. Sometimes a social worker's involvement is unnecessary, but many times it is needed. Many people have negative experiences with social workers because the social worker comes into their life when their family is in crisis. This is specifically the case in child welfare, but understand it is known among child welfare social workers, that child welfare is the most intrusive form of government.

Social workers are not just child welfare workers, but mental health counselors/therapists, non-profit workers (such as domestic violence shelters, group home workers, family resource centers), hospital staff, some lawyers and judges, lobbyists, drug treatment counselors and many more.
The social workers helped me realize it was time to get off drugs.
