A never-before-seen look into the humans within the profession...of Social Work.

When most people think of Social Work; Child Protective Services, low wages and challenging work may come to mind.

This book is a refreshing and eye opening view into the humans behind the profession; the journeys into, around and even out of Social Work.

Most people don't realize that this work is far-reaching beyond just Social Work, Behavior Analysis, Mental Health, Case Management, Treatment Planning and Social Services and looks into the fields of Psychology, Coaching, Consulting, Entrepreneurship and even death-row mitigation.

In this book you will find stories of journeys from long ago and journeys just beginning. Common themes within each journey include; the deep desire to be connected to others, the desire to help, the desire to see those that feel unseen, and a rise to the call for social justice.

Story telling is social action. Sharing journey stories builds the momentum to connect, to seek others' journey stories, and to see the journey stories within ourselves. This is collective building through journey stories shared.

This book serves as a professional call to action. All those who come into, around, or out of social work have a personal journey, and directly parallel, all those served by the field of social work have a journey story. Let's be reminded that the helping profession of social work was in fact built on passions professionalized.
