About:


The National Organization of Forensic Social Work [NOFSW] was established to provide for the advancement of education in the field of forensic social work through:
  • Training Programs, Forums, Panels and Lectures
  • Annual Conferences
  • Opportunities leading to Diplomate status in the Academy of Forensic Social Work
  • Newsletter Publication
  • Networking Opportunities
  • Political Action

...Thereby enhancing the professional activities of forensic practitioners, administrators, and policy makers.

Forensic social work is the application of social work to questions and issues relating to law and legal systems. This specialty of the social work profession goes far beyond clinics and psychiatric hospitals for criminal defendants being evaluated and treated on issues of competency and responsibility. A broader definition includes social work practice which in any way is related to legal issues and litigation, both criminal and civil. Child custody issues, involving separation, divorce, neglect, termination of parental rights, the implications of child and spouse abuse, juvenile and adult justice services, corrections, and mandated treatment all fall under this definition.

Objectives:

  • Organizing and implementing courses of instruction in the area of social work and the law, including training programs, forums, panels, and/or lectures for the purpose of improving and developing the capabilities of the membership
  • The development of training programs for social workers desirous of increased skill and knowledge in the area of social work and the law
  • Examining and certifying practitioners of forensic social work as to their competency in this field
  • As a result of the educational pursuits of the NOFSW, the exchange of ideas and experience in those areas where social work and the law overlap, and the improvement of relationships between social workers and other professionals working in the field
  • The dissemination of information to the public regarding the training, roles, and concerns of forensic social workers, and the potential contributions of the field
  • The development of standards of practice in the relationship of social work and the law
  • Stimulating and encouraging scientific research in the field
  • Publishing journals, newsletters, books or pamphlets, holding property, receiving grants and awards, monitoring research activities
