Nurturing Pillars of Society

Members of street gangs or Triad are usually referred to as “youth-at-risk” or “marginal youth.” There are several approaches that social workers use in analyzing these clients—the conventional approach, the RGC approach, the group transformation approach, the de-group approach, and the case-in-group approach. However, not all those who have relevant training may be perceived as a good detached worker. Interventions of this sort require social workers to have knowledge of developmental characteristics, the needs of adolescents, small-group theory, and Triad subculture. Social workers must possess programming and organizing skills that aid in developing relationships. Also, these workers have to possess certain personality characteristics for them to be able to facilitate group interventions.

Keywords:   conventional approach, RGC approach, group transformation approach, de-group approach, case-in-group approach, skills, personality characteristics, social workers, knowledge
