As part of Social Work Month, NASW has unveiled a new site on 50 ways to use a social work degree. The site, "One Profession, Countless Possibilities," profiles 50 different social workers and shows the diversity of the profession. Click the title above to go to the "50 Ways" site.
And if you want to read MORE stories of social workers, I have edited or co-edited three books of first person stories from social work practice:
Days in the Lives of Social Workers: 54 Professionals Tell "Real-Life" Stories From Social Work Practice (3rd Edition)
More Days in the Lives of Social Workers: 35 "Real-Life" Stories of Advocacy, Outreach, and Other Intriguing Roles in Social Work Practice
Days in the Lives of Gerontological Social Workers: 44 Professionals Tell Stories From "Real-Life" Social Work Practice With Older Adults (with Dara Bergel Bourassa)
These three books represent stories of 133 social workers in different settings and different roles!
You can check them out at http://www.daysinthelivesofsocialworkers.com and/or order at http://www.socialworker.com/home/blogsection/Publications/
There is a special price for the 3-book set.
