The study reveals that the social workers do feel stressed, but they only do so in periods. They declare that they would like to have more time for their work assignments, the meetings with the clients in particulate. What made a big difference to the social workers was the large amount of support that they received from their colleagues at work and their leadership. Our study also shows that, even though the social workers feel occasionally stressed, it has no obvious effects on their clients. The clients state that they don't notice that their social workers are stressed. (Less)
