A Response to Anastas and Coffey: The Science of Social Work and Its Relationship to Social Work Education and Professional Organizations
Voisin, Dexter R.; Wong, Marleen; Samuels, Gina Miranda
Research on Social Work Practice, v24 n5 p581-585 Sep 2014
Relationships are central to the profession of social work; relationships with allied disciplines, among professional social work organizations, and between classroom and field education. However, embedded within these relationships are historical tensions, and contemporary opportunities that can advance both the science of social work and the status of the profession. This article mainly highlights opportunities for advancing professional relationships between Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) and National Association of Social Work (NASW) and provides exemplars for strengthening relationships between the classroom, field education, and practicing social work professionals. We argue that deepening the connections between CSWE and NASW as well as the Society for Social Work Research (SSWR) require parallel efforts to link research, evidence-based practices, and the training and education of future social workers.
