Resources for Future School Social Workers

February 28 - March 7th is National School Social Work Week! In honor of this special week, here are some useful resources for school social workers, and those stuyding to become one.

Easily one of the most important resources for soon-to-be school social workers is the School Social Work Association of America .

Secondly, we have Certification from Start to Finish. Maintained by the New York State Education Department, this site contains detailed information on the topic of becoming certified, including how to apply for the Pupil-Personnel certificate, which is required for anyone working as a school social worker in New York State.

In addition to the many resources available online, there are numerous resources located within our collection geared specifically for school social workers. Some of these resources include:

Kelly, Michael S. Domains and demands of school social work practice a guide to working effectively with students, families, and schools. New York: Oxford University Press, 2008.
