Navigating the Challenges of the Social Service Sector

The guidance you need to find fulfillment and success in a unique workplace

Many people are drawn to working in the social services sector because it offers a kind of fulfillment usually not available in the for-profit sector. But it also provides a unique set of challenges -- often very different from those encountered in for-profit organizations -- that can stand in the way of success. Dr. Bruton applies her knowledge about, and experience in, the social services sector to act as your mentor, helping you avoid the pitfalls and take advantage of the opportunities endemic to this unique work environment. Dr. Bruton divides the pitfalls and opportunities into five categories, which she calls the 5 C's, and leads you through each of them:

  • Care - Taking care of yourself, your clients, and your organization
  • Community - Fitting in and getting the support you need
  • Collaboration - Working well with others and keeping the big picture in mind
  • Can Do - Putting in the kind of effort that will make your work stand out
  • Change - Being prepared for change and taking advantage of it

Dr. Bruton lays out both how you can avoid wrong moves in these areas and how to do the right things. As a psychologically sophisticated guide to working in the social services sector, she provides you with the tools you need to succeed and be fulfilled.
