A Systematic Review of Socialisation Strategies for Dealing with Involuntary Clients
In order to conduct a systematic review on the subject of socialization strategies for dealing with involuntary clients, a search protocol was designed and implemented. The search engine Google’s Google Scholar filter was used to find relevant articles through a search conducted with relevant and specifically designed search terms. These search terms yielded a paucity of results that were relevant to the systematic review at hand. Therefore, only three articles were studied further. The systematic review found that a majority of the work on this specific subject matter was by two authors and that there remained a lot of work to be done in the field to improve on this. The review also found that the work generally supported socialization as having a positive impact on the involuntary client’s ability to engage with the social worker and improved their overall behaviour.
