They seek to engage, educate and improve the environment, the political processes & organizations of a specific community for the betterment of the community. CAPs can be found in community-based organizations and governmental & operational entities, and other advocacy or social action roles on behalf of the community members (populations) that comprise the community. CAP have education, knowledge and skills that include positions as Directors of Programs;City Planners; School Administrators; Talent Managers; Community Organizers; Political Advocates/representatives; Social Activists (entrepreneurs) and a host of other abilities.

There's a Place for "Us"--How Community Fits Into Social Work

The CAP Practitioner-The business side of social work.
CAP Practitioner Series-The Community 1 of 2.
Communities are comprised of members connected by geography, shared interests, economics, social status, etc.). In the same regard, some communities are connected by the lack of these. CAP practitioners have and/or pursuing degrees that focus on the community members (human capital) of a community, specifically the environmental, political and social aspects that impact the community members. For example, city officials oversee environmental safety by managing the 'basic needs' of a community (environmental, housing, water, electric....), including the laws (policies and procedures) that guide the behavior and the operations of the community. Whereas, the social aspects are provided by the relationships, interaction, associations and organizations that synergizes the community and provide a foundation for members socialization needs. A CAP Practitioner provides advocacy, coordination, accountability, knowledge and skills to the systems (organizations, policies and community resources) needed to provide equitable distribution and ethical practices within the community.

The CAP Practitioner Series! My students often ask me enigmatic questions that cause me to pause....where can I work with a CAP concentration in social work? What knowledge and skills does a CAP possess, etc.? This series will attempt to provide a foundation for the inexplicable Community and Administrative Practitioner (Practice) in the Social Work profession. I hope to inspire current and future SW professionals and educate those systems that perceive SW as primarily direct practice with individuals, families and small groups (micro). Each week, I will break down a component of CAP. Thank you in advance for your support! #socialwork #administration #swrocks
