To provide an appropriate intervention, social workers first need to have conducted a thorough assessment. Having a comprehensive understanding of a client and their social environment allows a social worker to accurately identify the presenting problem and help the client develop goals to address their needs. Part of the assessment should be how power and privilege connect with the problem. For example, the client’s gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, disability, or socioeconomic status may put them at a disadvantaged or marginalized position.
