Casework practice at the transit home consists of complying client demographics and other family members to better assist and service the families (Bates-Derose, 2017). By aiding the family to work together and by dealing with specific issues which the family experiences, the social worker is able to engage the two types of family interventions which are designed for assisting and strengthening families. The main skills or techniques used by social workers in casework are counselling and mediation (Sowk unit 7 pg. 257). The main reasons for using group work in social work are meeting people’s need to belong and using mutual aid for empowerment while developing personal growth, enhancing social functioning, social goals and promoting social justice.
Parent-child interaction can be define as the communication and relation that is form between the parents and their child. Parent-child interaction is important to make them learn social rules and emotional prompts (Haven, Manangan, Sparrow, & Wilson, 2014). Through the years children can form different types of attachment with both or one specific parent. Also, according to attachment theorist, the type of attachment a child has with their parent will shape the way they see and think about themselves and others (Ontai & Thompson, 2008). The behavior of a child is greatly related to the relation and interaction they have with their parents.
Introduction This critical review discusses three articles on the policy and practice of child protection in schools. In the TOPIC article “Protecting Children in the Primary School”, Rosemary Webb and Graham Vulliamy examined the difficulties faced by Child Protection Coordinators and their possibilities to overcome them. The study by Helen Buckley and Kathryn McGarry in the Child Abuse Review article “Lessons on Child Protection: A Survey of Newly Qualified Primary-Level Teachers in Ireland” calls for “the standardization of the operation of child protection procedures”.

When social workers are dealing with impoverished client systems they quickly and efficiently get clients to resources that can meet their immediate needs. The historical function of social workers within the Head Start agency was to be responsible for enrollment, application processing, and documentation. Social workers have also been responsible for getting resources to children and their families. The social worker uses referrals to get children mental health, dental, physical health services. The main role of a Head Start social worker is to be a case manager.
They are a group that is regarded as ‘hidden’ or ‘unheard’. Young carers are usually defined as children under the age of 18 who carry out significant and regular tasks in order to assist and support other family members or friends. The role and responsibilities which they undertake are normally ones which would be concomitant with an adult. Young carers’ often provide care to a parent or sibling who is disabled, has some chronic illness or suffers from a mental health problem. (Becker, 2000: 378) Young carers’ have become a vast population and one which continues to grow.
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is a law ensuring services to children with disabilities throughout the nation. IDEA governs how states and public agencies provide early intervention, special education and related services to more than 6.5 million eligible infants, toddlers, children and youth with disabilities (http://idea.ed.gov/).

When working with diverse populations social workers should possess that skills needed to help with a client’s individual needs. Since there are many diverse population that social workers may come in contact with in different environments and situations. I feel that it’s important that social workers need to be well versified and educated in all aspects of helping an individual or families. Working with blended, gay and lesbian, multigenerational and grandparent-headed families is something that has become a thing of present. Social work interventions help and focus on families as units.
