Practice Perspectives


Though case management has been integral to social work since the founding of the social work profession, the practice of case management has changed greatly over the past century. NASW's standards for social work case management revised in 2013, reflect this evolving context and reinforce the social work profession's leadership role in case management. The practice perspective includes case examples illustrating how the revised standards may be applied with a variety of client populations across practice settings.
