Social Workers tend to provide services to culturally and socioeconomically diverse populations. We are uniquely interested in integrating social justice efforts into our practice both in the types of treatment we provide, and the populations we serve. Despite the growth in the social work and outpatient mental health professions, there is empirical evidence that most clients, in the United States, who receive psychotherapy, are not being treated with evidence based practices (Shafran, et al, 2009). Quality of care is particularly low in community mental health settings, which are often staffed by untrained and poorly supervised providers, and feature significant staff attrition. Given the prevalence of social workers in mental health practice, and the state of available care, training for social workers providing mental health care is a public health good. Further, in light of social workers’ tendency toward working with underserved populations, training social workers in evidence-based practices is a social justice issue. Without such training, high quality care becomes something that can only be accessed by those who are well-resourced.  

 

 

aren't there WAY Too many commas here?  I'm editing something and this person, I think, adds too many, commas, I'm wondering, do you agree?



 
Should types and populations be pluralized in the second sentence?

It does seem like there are too many commas in the bolded sentences.  They hyphenated "evidence-based" in its second mention, but not the first.  Personally, I think that compound adjectives should always be hyphenated but there seems to be a growing resistance to it of late.
