“Why Protect the Social Work Title?” is a workshop being offered at all NASW Regional Network Meetings in Connecticut. During this workshop, NASW/CT’s Executive Director, Stephen A. Wanczyk-Karp, LMSW, will cover everything you need to know about Social Work Title Protection!

We have entered an important season -the 2019 Legislative Session (January to June). NASW/CT introduced a bill into the state legislature for Social Work Title Protection; H.B. 5755: An Act Providing Title Protection To Individuals With A Degree In Social Work. Participants of this workshop will learn about the significance of Title Protection: (a) inform on how enactment will protect our clients from receiving sub-standard services; (b) educate on how the misuse and misrepresentation of the social work title impacts us all; (c) notify as to the number of ways protecting the title will benefit social workers and the profession itself; (d) alert to NASW/CT advocacy efforts, regulatory recourse, and how you can support this initiative.

Presenter, Stephen A. Wanczyk-Karp, LMSW, earned his Master’s in Social Work from Fordham University with a concentration in community organization. Steve has a long history of involvement with NASW; initially he was the Political Director for the New York State Chapter, Steve then became Executive Director of NASW/CT.  Steve then ventured to the national office as the Director of Chapter Services and Continue Education. A couple years thereafter, Steve returned to NASW/CT as Executive Director and has successfully led CT for a total of 27 years!
