NASW - Delaware Chapter
Survey on Proposed Expanded Social Work Licensure Regulations to Include
Social Work Multi-Tier Licensure 

The chapter conducted a survey to get members’ and non-members’ opinions regarding multi-tier licensure in Delaware. We received 210 responses. Eighty-nine percent (89%) of the respondents believe that multi-tier licensure protects the public from incompetent and unethical practice.  We are attaching survey responses by question. A survey report will be included in the December newsletter.  Watch for additional information from Dr. Saunders about the survey and the chapter’s on-going efforts to achieve regulations covering multi-tier licensure by June 2016.

Thank you for sharing your opinions regarding multi-tier licensure for Delaware.



The Delaware Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers is pleased to announce a training workshop designed especially for Delaware’s faith-based community.

Overview: The efforts of ministers and faith-based programs in Delaware to prevent substance abuse and to connect individuals who are trying to overcome addiction and substance abuse to services are well-known and respected. And, the importance of these services for individuals who prefer to include faith-based services in their effort to overcome substance abuse is also well documented.

Therefore, it is important that ministers and the staffs of faith-based organizations have the knowledge and skills that are consistent with the most current information and interventions related to preventing substance abuse and connecting people to necessary services.

Free training in Screening, Brief Intervention & Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) will follow in January 2016.
