Excel at Being One of the Unsung Heroes Who Work with People in Crisis

A true-to-life guide that will help you not just get by, but thrive in your many tasks and responsibilities.


Turnover rates for social services professionals are high, across the board. Out of true compassion and genuine interest, people choose a career of service because they truly want to help people in the community who are going through crises. Unfortunately, the physical and emotional demands of the job can soon relegate this passion to the back seat. Some might even think that these jobs pay well based on its demand, but in reality, many, if not most can hardly make ends meet with their current compensation.

Despite this, some social services professionals choose to persevere because, for them, no amount of money or fortune can compare to the feeling of being able to help people in need. The nature of the job will require you to immerse yourself in people’s crises and be there with them along the way. This can take its toll on the professionals’ physical and mental health. It is no easy feat, but for these people, the mere success of their clients and the feeling of fulfillment are what makes it all worthwhile.

This is why Janet Hume Cox, a 25-year veteran of working with abuse in families and severely emotionally disturbed youth, in various capacities, desired to share her wealth of experiences with the readers in a way that is both informative and down-to-earth. Having learned these lessons the hard way, she intends to make it a little easier for her fellow professionals.

The book is written to empower anyone and everyone who works in the community and helps others get to “a better place.” This is for professionals with a high school diploma to a Ph.D. and everything in between. It also doesn’t matter if you are a front-line worker or an agency director, you will find this book helpful and meaningful to you.

About the Author

Masters of Education (M.Ed.) in Community Counselling, The Citadel, Charleston, SC. Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Correctional Services, Eastern KY University, Richmond, KY.

Over 25 years, I provided services to clients with family violence issues and with youth in out-of-home placements and/or directed their family reunification. The majority of these clients were involved with child protective services, the community mental health centers, and/or the legal system. I worked with both victims and perpetrators of child abuse and domestic violence, as well as serving as adjunct professor, teaching Case Management to a wide variety of adult learners.

The information contained here-in is a sample of lessons that I had to learn the hard way – by the seat of my pants. And I’m hoping that this handbook will help others be more prepared for the challenges that await them as community mental health professionals. Whether you are a youth worker or a therapist or you provide outreach services, you can benefit from the information shared in “In Service to Your Community.”

And though I am certain that this manual can be useful to individuals continuing their education on their own, clinical supervision in the use of “In Service to Your Community” is highly recommended to achieve optimal results
