This year, the National Association of Social Worker’s (NASW) theme for Social Work Month (March 2019) is “Elevate Social Work.” NASW explains that Social Work Month is an opportunity for social workers around the nation and world, along with their supporters, to educate the public about the invaluable contributions of the profession.
