The Three Pillars of the Social Work Profession

CASW represents the 'Association' pillar of the social work profession on the national level.  CASW's policy and position statements are guided by the CASW Code of Ethics and our Social Policy Principles.

 


The 'Regulation' pillar of the profession is represented on the national level by the Canadian Council of Social Work Regulators (CCSWR). Click here to access CCSWR.

Model Regulatory Standards for Technology and Social Work Practice, published by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB), is now available under the Members tab at www.aswb.org or by clicking this link. The intended audience for these guidelines is the social work regulatory community, specifically ASWB members and governmental regulatory bodies responsible for ensuring the safe, competent, and ethical practice of social workers using digital and other electronic technology. ASWB will be partnering with the National Association of Social Workers and the Council on Social Work Education to update the 2005 Technology Practice Standards.


The Canadian Association for Social Work Education represents the 'Education' pillar of the profession. CASWE-ACFTS is a national association with a social justice focus that promotes excellence in social work education, scholarship, and practice.  It does this through advocacy, research, publication, consultation and collaboration.
