A Systematic Review Approach to Help Train Social Workers in Dealing with Involuntary Clients
Social workers who deal with involuntary clients face lot of challenges with regards to dealing with reluctant or resistant individuals. The education and training of such social workers, specifically with respect to techniques to deal with involuntary clients, can make them more effective at their job. A systematic review protocol was designed and implemented to find articles that address techniques and methods of dealing with involuntary clients. Five articles derived from this search were analysed further. Analysis of these articles yielded some elements that can be used to design a dedicated curriculum for social workers to help them more effectively deal with involuntary clients on a regular basis.
