Social Work Month 2015

Social Work Month 2015

     March is National Social Work Month. This year (2015), we asked social work students, practitioners, and educators to send us their creative work to express what is important and meaningful to them about the social work profession. We are pleased to present this collection of social work writing and talent!

     Thank you to Susan Mankita, LCSW, for the idea to include social workers' and social work students' talent in this year's Social Work Month Series. We hope to expand even more in the "talent" area in the future.

     Enjoy!

To those just starting down your life/career path, keep looking for what gives you passion and fulfills you. Remember to ask yourself the hard questions of what motivates you as a social worker. more
