Great Resource!

This is fantastic! Thank you for sharing Linda with the world, including MSSW students like me., and for making her a woman of color. I laughed and learned. Social Worker on the Shelf is a great way to not only teach social work students about their profession and practice, but also the general public. This year during Social Work Month, NASW will feature their Stand Up For Social Work campaign, which is intended to educate the public about the profession and encourage them to celebrate the contributions social workers make to society. Social Worker on the Shelf would be a creative, fun way to do this. (Spread the word!) Families might even be able to use some of the posts to engage their children in conversations about what we do, inspiring the next generation of social workers!
I don't frequent Instagram but I'm committed to returning to see more of what Linda's been up to.

Social worker on the shelf

Nicole, this article is from last year, but happily, Social Worker on the Shelf is back this year on Instagram. Glad you found this useful!

THIS inspired the #ThisIsSocialWork contest with Missouri NASW!

The SW on a shelf series on Instagram inspired me (@stacybraiuca) to chat with my colleague and ED of Missouri NASW to co-sponsor a contest for Social Work month for March 2016. We created and set up the contest based 90% on the inspiration from @s_w_ontheshelf and the fun educational posts in December. I would love it if you were able to pass along the information about it. We are extending the deadline for entries until February 29th! You don't have to be IN Missouri, be a member of NASW, or be ON instagram to enter! ALL you have to do is BE a social worker, or social work student; take a photo that means #thisissocialwork to you; write 2-3 short sentences to tell us why; and put it in this form and let us do the rest! http://www.formpl.us/form/5665889873559552/
