NASW Standards for Social Work Services in Schools. Policy Statement No. 7.
National Association of Social Workers, Washington, DC.
The National Association of Social Workers (NASW), as the collective expression of some 78,000 professional social workers, is responsibile for practice advancement, standards-setting and utilization, and the improvement of social service policies and programs. The development of Standards for Social Work Services in Schools is one significant component of the spectrum of activities to advance the mission of education through social work services. These Standards are the product of several years of investigation and direct involvement of school social work practitioners, social work consultants in State Departments of Education and social work educators. Organized into three sections, the Standards delineate: (1) the values, knowledge and skill that form the competence for school social work practice; (2) the social work profession's expectations of the administrative environment of the school; and (3) the professional responsibility of the School Social Worker. The next objective for the social work profession is to obtain the full acceptance and implementation of the standards in all school systems of the 50 states. (Author)
