What Questions Will a Social Worker Ask Me?

What to expect when meeting with a social worker. 

While every circumstance is unique, sample questions a social worker may ask during a first appointment include:

  • Why are you seeking help?
  • Is it a new or long-standing problem?
  • Have things changed and, if so, how?
  • How are you managing other parts of your life?
  • Who can you count on for support?
