Why “Social Work Desk?”
My first “Social Work” job I had while I was an MSW student started with me being the only generalist in a Social Services agency…everyone else was either a clinical social worker, or working in refugee resettlement…so I had a desk, in a walk in closet that I shared with six people (I was eventually promoted up to having a desk with an office that I shared with one other person). Sometimes all you have is a desk…and it’s at this incredible invention that you do your best to change the world.
Who Are You?
I’m an MSW graduate student in their last few months of coursework and field placement.
What will be on this site?
This site is setup to be a way for me to communicate my thoughts, feelings, and beliefs regarding Social Work and the Social Work Profession. I hope to use it as a way of conveying to the public the importance of the profession, as well as to use it as a tool to communicate with my colleagues about things that are important to us (thoughts and ideas on emerging research, best practices, etc.).
