The Good Fight: Dispelling Public and Media Misperceptions of Social Workers

There have been many myths and misconceptions about the social work profession since its genesis. As a child, I thought that social workers only gave government benefits or investigated child abuse claims. Once I completed my MSW program, I realized that social work is a scholarly profession with a rich history and an honorable mission. It is up to all of us in the profession to share our stories, fill in the gaps in the knowledge base, and model ethical behavior. Hopefully, perceptions will change in the near future. Thank you!
