Social workers believe that helping people navigate difficult environments, while respecting their innate strengths, improves lives. With that in mind, NASW announced the 2013 National Professional Social Work Month theme as “Weaving Threads of Resilience and Advocacy.”
Celebrated each March, National Professional Social Work Month is an opportunity for social workers across the country to turn the spotlight on the profession and highlight the important contributions they make to society.
For 2013, the theme builds on the idea that “social work is the profession of hope.” Many practitioners and students say their work is about helping others move forward.
Organizers want the 2013 campaign to amplify the social worker’s role in helping people use their personal strengths to create a vision and a plan for what life can be.
In the approaching months, NASW and its chapters will develop new tools and activities for the March celebration.
