NASW is developing a task force for the revision of the 2013 Guidelines for Social Work Safety in the Workplace. The guidelines were created to establish safety measures and protocols for social workers within the workplace. Social workers utilize these guidelines as a resource to help create, develop, and assist communities, private and public agencies, local, state, and federal policymakers to create a safe working environment in areas where social workers are employed.
Learn how the adolescent brain continues to develop, and how that knowledge can provide guidance on how social workers and other practitioners work with older youth, especially those who experience the child welfare system. This initiative was supported by the Annie E. Casey Foundation and draws from several resources developed through the Jim Casey Youth Opportunities Initiative.
