Message from the ASWB

The ASWB is seeking registered social workers to volunteer to join their Practice Analysis Task Force. Selected participants will provide subject matter expertise to the ASWB’s practice analysis process and help shape the content outlines to update social work licensing examinations. The ASWB undertakes a practice analysis every five to seven years so that exam content remains relevant to the current practice of social work.

The Practice Analysis Task Force will be an inclusive group that reflects demographic and geographic diversity.

The deadline to apply is April 8, 2022.

Visit the ASWB website for more information on the Practice Analysis Task Force or to submit an application.
