Social Workers in Combat: Application of Advanced Practice Competencies in Military Social Work and Implications for Social Work Education
Brand, Michael W.; Weiss, Eugenia L.
Journal of Social Work Education, v51 n1 p153-168 2015
This article illustrates the types of situations that U.S. uniformed social workers have experienced in combat deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan with the purpose of preparing current and future social workers to effectively serve military and veteran clients in either military or civilian settings. Vignettes demonstrate the application of the military social work competencies as delineated by the Council on Social Work Education based on the 2008 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards. Implications for social work education are discussed along with the use of case studies through a problem-based learning approach.
