NASW-NYS

NASW - New York State Chapter

Advocating for the social work profession; and policies, services, and programs that promote social justice throughout New York State.

Mission

Founded in 1955, the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) is the largest membership association for professional social workers in the world, with over 115,000 members. The New York State Chapter is the second largest chapter of NASW.

Providing Advocacy for Social Workers and New York State!

1. Social workers practice in all settings with all populations.

Professional social workers provide services to individuals, families, groups, communities, and organizations. NASW members make up much of the social work labor force in New York and provide a substantial part of social services. In just one critical area of mental health social workers provide more than half of all care, especially in rural counties. In addition to direct service, social work practice includes policy development, education, management, and research.

Social workers provide service as private practitioners or as employees in private and public agencies. You will also find committed and caring social workers in schools, hospitals, offices, factories, and community centers anywhere people need help, guidance, and support. Unlike so many other professionals, NASW members look beyond the individual to the family, the group, the organization, and society as a whole. Our aim is to draw people together for mutual support, to help them to recognize and to use available personal and external resources to meet their needs, to encourage organizations to be responsible to their members, and to influence and guide social policies.

2. Social workers advocating for fair public policies.

NASW New York State helps shape legislation that touches on health, welfare, and education, or in some way protects and strengthens opportunities and social supports for individuals and families. Every year, chapter members gather in Albany to discuss with legislators issues of concern to social work consumers and professionals. New York State members also participate in coalitions at the state and local level; host legislative briefings; and communicate with elected leaders at the state and local level in person, by phone, mail, fax, and e-mail. NASW members provide testimony and expert advice to community leaders and elected officials to develop legislation and policies which maximize opportunities for all New Yorkers.

NASW members also participate in the electoral process. The New York State Political Action for Candidate Election (NYS PACE) committee is the separate and independent political action arm of NASW. It endorses candidates, disburses voluntary contributions, and provides volunteers to those candidates for public office who support legislation and policies consistent with those of NASW.

3. Protecting the public with professional standards.

NASW New York State promotes the quality and effectiveness of social work practice through adherence to our Code of Ethics. NASW adjudicates complaints against members and agencies to ensure ethical practice and nondiscrimination with respect to age, race, color, religion, national origin handicapping conditions, gender, and sexual orientation. NASW has developed practice standards to promote sound professional practice in child protection, case management, school social work, long-term care and health care facilities, among other settings. NASW-developed clinical indicators are used to systematically monitor the quality and appropriateness of patient care.

The Academy of Certified Social Workers (ACSW) designates those NASW members with demonstrated experience and knowledge in the field. The ACSW credential indicates that the holder is qualified for independent, self-regulated practice. NASW also offers credentials to recognize members’ skills in specialty areas such as the School Social Work Specialist credential and the Diplomate in Clinical Social Work. NASW is the significant force in advocating for enhanced regulation of social work practice to ensure that the public is protected from unethical or incompetent practitioners.

4. Social development through NASW.

Members of NASW New York State hold bachelor’s or advanced degrees from colleges or universities accredited by the Council on Social Work Education. New York State encourages members to continue professional education and development throughout their career. Consistent participation in continuing education enables social workers to maintain and increase their proficiency in service delivery: new knowledge is acquired, skills are refined, and professional attitudes are reinforced. Continuing education is a self-directed process which requires NASW members to assume responsibility for their own professional development. The chapter accredits continuing education providers and verifies the accomplishment of individual NASW members. The chapter offers regular workshops and seminars throughout New York on a variety of practice issues.

ONC’s Cures Act Final Rule

Pen on pad of paper

March 2020 marked the release of the 21st Century Cures Act: Interoperability, Information Blocking, and the ONC Health IT Certification Program Final Rule by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). This has been a five-year process and a promise for improvement and progress in the United States health care system.

In December 2016, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC’s) Cures Act was signed into law by Congress and has been under revision so that the newly issued Final Rule supports modern-day technology. The Cures Act is designed to accelerate medical product development, information innovation and advancements in access to patient information. A goal of the Cures Act is to establish the means by which the market takes the lead and drives development – to not wait on legislation and regulations in order to make improvements.

Man writing on paper

H.R. 6074 (“Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2020”) is an $8.3 billion COVID-19 funding package that was signed into law on March 6, 2020, to address issues that arise during the coronavirus public health emergency. H.R.6074 includes a provision to temporarily lift restrictions and implement the wider use of telehealth services by Medicare beneficiaries.

 

Clarity results in guidance, pride, and effective partnerships!

Mental health counseling is an honorable profession and vital to the health of a society.  Mental health providers offer a unique skill set to clients and healthcare teams. Since there are so many titles used for mental health professionals (LMHC, LPC, LPCC…) and similar types of mental health professionals (Counselors, Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists, Psychologists, Psychoanalysis, …), there is often confusion about the specifics of the profession.  Because of this, the mental health counseling profession has been in need of an official and unified statement that defines its values, unique characteristics, and qualifications.

Image of a virus

 

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has stated that the coronavirus, COVID-19, will likely become a pandemic.  They state that anyone in close contact with others with COVID-19, including healthcare workers are more likely to be exposed to the virus.  The CDC recommends using telehealth to prevent patients who can be cared for at home from going to healthcare facilities, link.  They also recommend encouraging sick healthcare providers to stay at home, and they have made available infection control procedures for healthcare providers.

When a patient goes to a healthcare facility they are likely to encounter other people who are ill and seeking treatment.  The best solution to the coronavirus is to limit the opportunities for it to spread. Telehealth is a great option to treat those who do not NEED to come to a facility for treatment, but who can receive adequate care at home.
