Social Work

If you're looking for career training in the very broad field of social services, you should consider the profession of social work.  Social workers serve individuals, families, groups, organizations and communities, and they practice in a large number of settings: clinics, hospitals, mental health agencies, schools, prisons, youth centers, nursing homes, etc.
