I want to extend congratulations on behalf of THE NEW SOCIAL WORKER to all new social work graduates!

I am very excited about this issue, because it addresses some very important ideas for all of us in social work, and especially for new graduates.

As social workers, we often help clients with their anxiety. We know that some anxiety can be detrimental to one’s health, but that sometimes anxiety can serve a useful purpose in people’s lives. And that includes our own! So, in this issue, we introduce the concept of New Social Worker Anxiety Syndrome (NSWAS), a term coined by Jonathan Singer and Claudia Dewane. We also answer some of your questions about the ASWB licensing exams in an interview with the ASWB executive director.

Here are some highlights from this issue:

• Student Role Model: Nanci Woodson

• Social Workers as Whistle Blowers

• Exploring the Uncharted: Creating a New Social Work Field Placement

• Treating New Social Worker Anxiety Syndrome

• An MSW’s Life (T.J.'s final column)

• The Importance of Closure

• Rewards and Challenges in Dialysis Social Work

• Paying Attention to the Small Things

• The Visit

• 10 Questions About the ASWB Exams

• SW 2.0: Profiles in Social Work and Technology: John McNutt, Ph.D.

...and lots more!
