The Future of Social Work: An Essential Chat with the NASW President

Presented by: Milderd ‘Mit’ Joyner, DPS, LCSW

Description: Social workers have continued to answer the call to service by contributing to the healing of our Nation during times of pandemic, racial unrest, economic uncertainty and political divisiveness in the past year. We know social workers have always been present in times of crisis, helping people overcome issues such as death and grief, helping communities recover from disaster, and many have worked to hold this Nation accountable to its proclaimed values by advocating for equal rights for all people. The 2021 Social Work Month Theme is ‘Social Workers are Essential’, but, what is essential for social workers, and our profession, in order to continue our work in overcoming present and future challenges? Join NASW President Mit Joyner and NASW-NYS as we discuss the future of social work, including how our Association and workforce must adapt and evolve for clients and clinicians in 2021, and what is essential to the personal and professional health of social workers as individuals. This Chapter Chat is interactive and is a platform for you to engage with NASW staff and leadership directly. We invite you to join us and as we map out the future of social work together.
