TOPEKA, Kan. — Ann Goodall's work with the Kansas Department of Children and Families is often traumatic, she said, and though she's been there for 16 years with no thought of quitting, many co-workers do because the work chips away at people, leaving jobs the state has filling. To solve that problem, the department loosened the requirements for the jobs so that applicants no longer must be licensed social workers. By Mitchell Willetts. MOVED. 650 words.
