The Mass. Department of Social Services (DSS) is responsible for providing social services in Massachusetts. They also provide counseling and other support services, as well as child welfare services. These services can be found throughout the state, but the Mass. Department of Social Services covers most of the cities and towns in Massachusetts.
Here’s an example of the kind of services that have been provided by the Mass.
DSS is the agency that handles the most serious cases involving domestic violence. I know this because I got a call from someone who was assaulted by a DSS social worker. This is the first time I’ve ever heard of this and I felt like it was a pretty serious situation.
I know what you’re thinking. I guess that if I call a state agency and say “hey, I just had a call from a woman who was attacked by a social worker,” they will probably say “okay, well, that’s a pretty serious situation.” But that’s not really the case. Most of the DSS social workers are just regular social workers. The ones that are part of a domestic violence unit are not typically referred to as “social workers.
If you want to get more details about the call, you can read the full report that was sent to the state’s social worker hotline here. I found the woman’s story to be a little disturbing, but not one of the most disturbing stories Ive ever heard. It went on and on and on about how the social worker had a huge argument with the woman because the woman was threatening her with physical violence.
This is one of those situations where the social worker was calling the cops because the woman was in a state of shock and in her mind, she had no idea what had happened to her. As we all know, domestic violence is actually a very violent, emotional, and psychologically damaging problem. And that’s why it is called a domestic violence investigation.
That’s good to know.
I think the social worker had a big argument with the woman because she was threatening her with physical violence. The social worker was calling the cops because the woman was in a state of shock and in her mind, she had no idea what had happened to her. Even though the social worker was the only one in the house. And she tried to call 911, she never tried to call the police.
When my ex-wife was in a state of shock and I was in a state of shock, I wasn’t thinking about what was going on with her. I was just thinking about my life. I was thinking about my marriage. I was thinking about my life. And this woman was in a state of shock trying to explain how it was going to affect her children. The social worker was trying to convince her that it was a medical problem.
What really got my attention was her insistence to go to the police. “Why should I go to the police? I don’t know anything about this.” She insisted that she was in the hospital and that she had no idea that she was in a coma. But she was in shock. I was in shock. She was in shock. My ex-wife was in shock. The social worker was in shock.
