#MacroSW Twitter Chats Start Tonight at 9pm EST!

March 13, 2014

YOU’RE INVITED!

THIS WEEK: Discussion of the Rothmann Report. As described by Rachel West:

Over the past year I have written often about the findings in the Rothman Report, which you can read below. The report found that macro social work is in trouble. Schools of social work are increasingly cutting out macro focused courses, there are few macro field placements available, and faculty and administration are actively discouraging students from pursuing community practice work.

Following the publication of the report, ACOSA formed a commission that was tasked with expanding on the research in the report and coming up with solutions to the concerns raised. Recently the Congressional Research Institute for Social Work and Policy (CRISP) wrote an article about the Rothman Commision. You can find that article here.
