Becoming SSW Leaders & Advocates: Announcing an Exciting SSWAA E-Conference Opportunity
“The primary mission of the social work profession is to enhance human well-being and help meet the basic human needs of all people, with particular attention to the needs and empowerment of people who are vulnerable, oppressed, and living in poverty. A historic and defining feature of social work is the profession’s focus on individual well-being in a social context and the well-being of society. Fundamental to social work is attention to the environmental forces that create, contribute to, and address problems in living . (NASW, 2017) Reflecting back on why you chose to become a school social worker, it have been that school social work is a way for you to effect change on a real level for a client, a community, an organization, or our nation. As school social workers we deeply believe in helping others, and to do that effectively, we must be leaders and stronger advocates. ”
