Police and social workers visited the home of Kylie and Kendall Jenner after an anonymous caller said the relatives of the famous Kardashian clan were in danger, according to this Examiner article.

Authorities determined Kylie, 15, and Kendall, 16, were safe. The family also cooperated with authorities and understood while child protective services workers visited, the article said.

Kylie and Kendall are the children of Bruce Jenner and Kris Jenner, ex-wife of deceased celebrity lawyer Robert Kardashian. They are the half-sisters of Kourtney, Khloe and Kim Kardashian.

Kylie and Kendall are pursuing modelling careers and have also appeared on the E! reality series “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”

  1. One must wonder: is it beneficial or detriment to cover benign issues of a narcissistic family who is commonly seen on almost every gossip magazine or website? To make matters worst, the viewer must leave this website in order to get the full story, which in turn may cause the viewer to continue surfing an outside source instead of view the pertinent information found under this website. Personally, the Kardashian clan is a major turn off, and this story provided little evidence to support the importance of social work or issue social workers should promote.

  2. I agree with K. Leonard. If you were to go to any other professional sites related to fields like medicine, nursing, engineering, and law, you wouldn’t find this inane tabloid garbage. I’d rather see more evidenced-based studies, peer reviewed articles, and educational materials related to our field, especially from an NASW affiliated site. And we wonder why other professions disrespect us…

    Thank you for your comment.

    SocialWorkersSpeak.org was launched in 2009 to help social workers track and influence how they are portrayed in the media.

    This includes mentions of social workers on reality TV shows, tabloids and movies.

    The National Association of Social Workers often uses SWS.org to find and verify whether reporters are labeling people as social workers who are not trained and educated members of the profession. We then contact the news organization to get the story straight.

    We also use SWS.org to connect to reporters as well as TV and film directors, producers and writers. SWS.org has helped social workers interact with officials at Fox TV, A&E, the Oprah Winfrey Network and several other networks.

    Other organizations, including nurses, have launched similar campaigns to monitor how their professions are depicted in media.

    SocialWorkersSpeak.org is doing exactly what NASW designed it to do.

    For more information on evidence-based studies, peer reviewed articles and educational materials I invite you to peruse NASW’s main website, http://www.socialworkers.org.

    NASW’s online Practice section follows the latest development in the social work profession, including advancements in care of adolescents and people who are aging. NASW also publishes excellent peer-reviewed journals, including one that highlights evidence-based studies in social work.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me with additional questions or concerns.

    Have a great day.
