SocialWorkersSpeak.org gives you a chance to influence how the entertainment industry and news media depicts the social work profession and issues social workers care about. The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) developed this site to allow social workers and the general public to critique and improve the way social workers and social issues are covered in the news media, and portrayed in the entertainment industries.
The site is sponsored by the NASW Communications Network (NCN), which represents educators, researchers, practitioners and policymakers throughout the social work community. NCN was designed specifically to help producers and writers understand what social workers do and to ensure that social work issues are portrayed accurately in the entertainment media. Since being aligned with the NASW Foundation in 2008, NCN has co-sponsored a successful Hollywood forum with the Entertainment Industries Council (EIC) on women’s health issues, and consulted with hundreds of journalists on numerous consumer and social issues.
This interactive site serves as the latest step by NASW to improve public understanding of the social work profession’s strengths and expertise.
