Join the Convo – NASW needs feedback on Draft Technology Standards in SW
I am so pleased that the draft Technology Standards for Social Work Practice have been released for public review. NASW, CSWE, CSWA, and ASWB developed a task force to collaboratively draft these technology standards, which you can access the draft standards here.
I am working with several groups to provide comments to the task force and, I also plan to submit my own comments. Once adopted, these standards will be considered a model for best practice in social work. Given the important legal and ethical role that practice standards have in the professional lives of social workers, I believe it is essential to offer constructive and timely feedback on this document…

Part One: Clinical Titles on Trauma and Treatment
Do you want to advance your knowledge of trauma this summer? Have you been meaning to actually read a classic in the field, such as Herman’s Trauma and Recovery? Do you find learning about a clinical condition is enriched through fictional accounts?
Then I have two lists for you! This week, I offer a dozen titles on clinical aspects of trauma.
Culled from reading lists, online discussion groups, and recommendations from University at Buffalo faculty, I gave priority to those titles from major academic social work publishers. The list reflects a range of disciplines among its authors. Of note: the most recent titles include special attention to issues with those who served in the military and military families.
Part Two: Trauma in Fiction will be posted on August 13th. Novels often include critical social and political issues, and some even include characters who are social workers.
I hope you find this list useful and that your summer allows lots of time for reading!
