Help Your Fellow Social Workers in Just Eight Minutes

Oct 1, 2023

Social Worker talking with client about risky alcohol use.

We’re listening! Tell us what you know, think—and wish you knew—about client alcohol and other substance use.

Eight minutes is all it takes to help us better train and educate social workers who serve clients who may be at risk for substance-related problems, including substance use disorders and substance-exposed pregnancies. Your responses will be completely anonymous.

NASW, along with other leading professional groups, is part of the Collaborative for Alcohol-Free Pregnancy, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention initiative. In partnership with NASW Foundation and the Health Behavior Research and Training Institute at The University of Texas at Austin Steve Hicks School of Social Work, we’re working to address alcohol and other substance use during pregnancy by improving practice, education, and awareness among health professionals.

We appreciate your feedback and support for the NASW community. Visit NASW’s page on Behavioral Health for more resources. Additional clinical resources are also available through our Collaborative partners:
