School Social Work 101: Knowledge for Effective Practice with Students, Families and Schools
Navigating today's ever-changing educational landscape presents myriad challenges and demands for practitioners to hone macro skills beyond their clinical training to effect systems change for student achievement. This workshop provides an overview of the domains delivered by social workers in educational settings through examination of educational law, school reform movements and the new NASW standards of practice. It highlights the importance of differentiated evidence-informed interventions for all stakeholders; emphasizes the data expectations for all students, especially children with exceptionalities; and underscores an ethical decision-making framwork to complex school situations, relative to boundaries and confidentiality.
