  • .Scenario #1:You are a social worker at a community action program that provides a range of social services to low-income people, including housing assistance, emergency food, crisis intervention services, and energy assistance. One of your colleagues, who is not a social worker, learned from a client that two years earlier the client robbed a convenience store during a time in his life when he was addicted to heroin. The crime remains unsolved; the man was never arrested for the robbery. The man has since been in intensive substance abuse treatment and is coping well. At a staff meeting, your colleague, who does not have a college degree or formal professional education, states that in his opinion the agency has an obligation to report the man to the local police. A team meeting is scheduled for later in the week to discuss this further. How would you handle this situation?
