Emotional Sharing Skills with Orphans among Social Workers at Social Protection Centers in Vietnam

Author(s): Nguyen Huu Hung


Child protection and care is always a fundamental activity in the development strategy of every country. The care and protection of children in general, and children in special circumstances in particular, are always identified by our State as a key task in investing in social development. Vietnam currently has over 400 social protection centers, with the number of people in need of assistance from social work services accounting for about 40% of the population. Up to now, the whole country has about 235,000 people working in social work, including over 35,000 civil servants, officials, and workers working in the field of social work. However, the social work force still has some shortcomings in terms of quantity, capacity, and lack of skills, resulting in a lack of professionalism in their activities. Orphaned children belong to the group of children with particularly difficult circumstances, suffering from emotional deprivation. This requires social workers need to have skills, especially in emotional sharing, advocacy skills, relationship building skills, and skills to help children integrate into the community... This article showed the current situation of emotional sharing skills with orphaned children by social workers working at social protection centers in Vietnam (Birla Children's Village Hanoi, SOS Children's Village Hanoi, SOS Children's Village Viet Tri). From there, recommendations are made to improve the emotional sharing skills of social workers with orphaned children in Vietnam.
