"Social workers take pride in being the only professionals trained to work with people in their environment, looking at all dimensions of the individual’s life. Our training comes from a nationwide system of accredited education programs, and is reinforced with practice standards, credentials, and state licensing regulations." - NASW
It is important that social workers have an avenue to have their opinions heard and to advance the profession. NASW is the leading advocate for the social workers across the United States, but more social worker students and professionals need to make their opinions known and become advocates for the field. This blog was created to be another outlet for any social worker to share resources, opinions and feelings about the profession, their work or how NASW can better aid Michiganders.
