Proposals for Solutions to Unclear Conceptualization of Selected Concepts Theory of Management Dilemmas of Social Workers


The article is a discussion of the theory of the dilemmas of social workers, as defined in Musil (Musil et al., 2004; Musil, 2004; Musil, Nečasová, 2008; Musil, Janská, 2011). In particular, it is dedicated to the concepts related to managing disparate expectations before social workers implement their work to client organizations. From the results, it is evident that this theory deserves attention and the acquiring of new knowledge. One of the findings of the essay is the ability to handle difficult decisions by changing the social workers, their ideals, and thereby eliminating the dilemma.
