At Eyas Landing, social work will focus on supporting children identify and understand their emotions and tackle barriers to success within the realms of their emotional and social experiences as well as supporting success within other areas of treatment a child may be receiving from our multidisciplinary team at Eyas Landing.
Clinical social work has a primary focus on the mental, emotional, and behavioral well-being the children and families Eyas Landing serves. It centers on a holistic approach to psychotherapy and the client’s relationship to his or her environment. Clinical social work views the child’s relationship with his or her environment as essential to treatment planning and understanding (NASW, 2019).
Clinical social workers perform services in a variety of settings including private practice, hospitals, community mental health, primary care, and agencies. Clinical social workers are mandated to practice under standards set by the National Association of Social Workers as well as a code of ethics.
