6 Ways to Stay Safe As a Social Worker During Home Visits

If you’ve ever felt unsafe during a home visit, then keep reading. In this video I wanted to cover Social Worker home visits…this is a topic that a lot of Social Workers express concerns about when they are working in the field….and rightfully so… because sometimes we go into situation that are dangerous, that are hostile or places where there is a high level of crisis and conflict. Staying safe as a Social Worker takes planning, communication and a keen awareness of your environment and of your triggers.


Whether you are a CPS Worker, School Social Worker, Case Manager, Clinical Social Worker, or Foster Care worker…and I have been all of the above…I hope this video will give you a few things to be mindful of as you are conducting home visits. Know that you can grow and expand this list as you gain more experience in the field.


Meet Manicka

I created The Social Work Success Path blog and podcast, during the pandemic of 2021 to provide online education and mentorship for Social Workers. I felt very isolated and disconnected being only in the second year of running my private practice. I strongly considered going back to work when everything shut down. The resources and tools that I share helped me to maintain my practice through the pandemic and plan a successful transition as a Social Work content creator, doing work that I love and connecting with Social Workers all around the world. I did this in the span of 1 year, but using the resources, trainings and tools that I have pulled together, and all my all lessons learned, you can make your career transition much sooner than I did!
