Robin Steinberg & Elizabeth Keeney – Shared Roots and Shared Commitments: The Centrality of Social Work to Holistic Defense

Social workers in holistic defender offices play a fundamentally different role from

social workers in other social service settings and even from social workers in traditional

public defender offices. Holistic defense social workers are advocates, not clinicians. They

are profoundly passionate about client self-determination, social justice, and every

individual’s right to be treated with dignity and respect. While many social workers at

holistic defender offices have significant clinical skills and may have previously worked in

clinical settings, the majority of the social workers involved with holistic advocacy are also

students of policy and organizing who reject the location of problems within the individual

alone
