Standards for Social Work Practice in Child Welfare Revisions

NASW is developing a task force for the revision of the 2013 Child Welfare Standards . NASW reviews and revises these standards to incorporate and update the best practices in the field of Child Welfare.

We encourage social workers who have a minimum of 5 years of Child Welfare experience to apply. This includes direct practice and management work for child protection agencies, tribes, foster care agencies, adoption services, and community-based child abuse prevention and education services. A competitive candidate should have excellent writing skills and is expected to participate in meetings and prepare documentation. The Task Force is a yearlong commitment that requires attendance of monthly virtual meetings and email communication between meetings as needed. You must be a NASW member to participate. If you would like to be considered for participation in this task force, please submit your résumé to no later than January 31, 2024./p>
