Case managers are often confused with social workers. I’ve had clients for years that thought that I was their social worker instead of their case manager. When I explain that I’m the case manager and not the social worker I often get a confused look in response. Case managers are also referred to as other titles such as case workers and service coordinators. There are some similarities and there are many areas where the two jobs overlap. It really depends on the type of case manager or social work position. Both require similar educational backgrounds but specific job duties can differ depending on the services provided.
