Social Worker

A social worker is a licensed professional with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers who is guided by the Scope of Practice and Ethical Standards.

Social workers collaborate with their clients to address challenges through a process of assessment, diagnosis, treatment and evaluation in order to achieve optimum psychosocial and social functioning. To do this, social workers rely heavily on the knowledge of and access to their community resources.  This is often achieved by the means of collaborative work, continuing education, networking and communication. 

A registered social worker will work collaboratively with other health care professionals to guide your treatment goals within the following areas:

  • Mental health concerns (ie: depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, etc)
  • Stress management
  • Effective coping skills
  • Addiction
  • Family support for those suffering with mental health and/or addiction issues
  • Concurrent Disorders
  • Education to support wellness and recovery management

Further assistance includes:

  • Referrals and advocacy for access to resources to assist individuals and families;and
  • Crisis intervention.

Supports may be offered as individual and/or group information sessions.

As a member of the College our Social Workers are aware of the extent and parameters of their competence and scope of practice. They seek consultation as required.  In order to provide the best care to our patients, they participate in the continuing competency program of the College and are accountable to keep a record of their goals and achievements. They gain further support and knowledge from a peer group of social workers from FHT’s around the north who meet regularly via OTN to offer peer supervision, consultation and to learn more about the resources and supports available to our patients.
