NASW Standards

2003

The NASW Standards for the Practice of Social Work with Adolescents are designed to guide social workers in a variety of settings as they help young people become competent and healthy adults. The unique perspectives and breadth of social work practice provide systemic linkages between the social work profession and the social entities that affect adolescent development. Adequately meeting the needs of youths means engaging all systems—individual, family, and the broader community—in efforts to prevent problems and promote health and well-being.
