Who Are the Alms Experts?

This post at Overcoming Bias is definitely social work related. What it shows is that our profession is both not very recognized, publicized or utilized! In it, they state:

The missing group here is alms experts: we have no strong profession of those who specialize in helping the poor, crippled, etc.

I'm sorry, but is that not us? My theory is that a majority of social workers with the skills to work at the top not only don't see that they have those skills, but undervalue the title of social worker. If they're working at the top levels, they damn well don't call themselves social workers.

The ASWB is an exclusionary licensing institution. The implicit bias and blatant racial discrimination seems to run rampant in the ASWB self-serving organization. The national demographic is changing and ASWB will soon be irrelevant.

Help us thrive. A small donation of only a few dollars will help us keep up to date and running smoothly.
