People will do what they see fit, but what they see fit might be altered by judicious counseling.  Granted, the relationship between a client and a case worker could be unbalanced; that needs to addressed, independent of the advice offered.

Case workers are not advisors. Case workers are paper pushers, and simply make sure the forms are filled out. At least, that's how I've always been treated when I've had the misfortune to avail myself of services from DHS.
