The Social Work Abstracts database, produced by the National Association of Social Workers, Inc., contains more than 45,000 records, spanning 1977 to the present, from social work and other related journals on topics such as homelessness, AIDS, child and family welfare, aging, substance abuse, legislation, community organization, and more.
This database also contains the "NASW Register of Clinical Social Workers," 12th Edition which provides a listing of clinical social workers who have met national standards for education and experience established by the NASW Competence Certification Commission on recommendation of the Committee on Clinical Social Work. The first "NASW Register of Clinical Social Workers" was published in 1976, with a supplement issued in 1977. Updated editions were published in 1978, 1982, 1985, 1987, 1991, 1993, 1995, 1997, 1999, and 2001. The "NASW Register" has become an important resource for identifying social workers who are qualified providers of mental health services. Like its predecessors, this edition aims to advance sound professional practice standards by providing a uniform method to identify qualified clinical social work practitioners.
