Which web site helps you learn about your area of practice, be it mental health, substance abuse, child welfare, etc.?  Why is it your favorite?  What can other social workers find there?

Let's start a conversation - I'm compiling a list of the best web sites that social workers use in an upcoming sw 2.0 column and would love to add your favorite site to the list.  Please list your favorite in the comments below or email me (karen@karenzgoda.org).


  1. i am only a student SCIE very useful!

  2. Hi Andi, thanks for your comment!  What is SCIE?  What makes it useful?

  3. Hi Karen,

    I like:


    Keeps me laughing and is something I often share with new social workers.


  4. Thanks for all the suggestions!  Can't wait to check them out to see if they'd be a good fit for the article - thanks again!

  5. Why "The New Social Worker Online" of course! :-D   Seriously, it does have a lot of great features. The ongoing discussion boards; the articles; the blogs; and links to even more great things.

    Another great source of links is "Prin's Links for Social Work Students" particularly for the Americans in the crowd.

    And for dark, bitter, sarcastic (aka the best) humour, there's Trench Warfare.

  6. Thanks for all the work you do on this blog!  It's a wealth of information.  I'm hoping a lot of folks say http://www.AllThingsPrivatePractice.com is their favorite!

  7. I came accross this site: http://kspope.com/index.php
    It is for psychologists, however, it has a very useful information for social workers, like setting boundaries, ethical dilemas, etc

  8. For me it's www.TexasSocialWork.org It's a great place to network with other social workers in my area and share experience as well as information.

  9. I like the Profiles In Social Work podcast.

  10. Thank you for all websites. I also like www.communitycare.co.uk
