Reaching out to School Social Workers Around the World
Michelle Alvarez, Associate Professor of Social Work, Minnesota State University, Mankato
I am proud to announce the creation of a school social work listserv that aims to link school social workers from around the world. I believe that no matter how many school social workers there are in a school and no matter how long these services have existed, we all have something to contribute to the field of school social work. This is an opportunity to ask other school social workers how they address a situation, and to provide your practice wisdom with others!
To subscribe to the ISSW listserv go to the information page at http://mail.mnsu.edu/mailman/listinfo/issw
and enter in your email address and your name. You will also be presented with the option of setting your privacy password. If you choose not to enter a password, one will be automatically generated for you, and it will be sent to your email once you have confirmed your subscription. You can always request a mail-back of your password when you edit your personal options.
The default language for this listserv is English. This applies to both web-based and email-based messages. If the user chooses to use another language the user will be able to select their own preference for the language they would like to use. To change the language delivery option go your listserv account and click on the language option.
I hope that you will take time to join in our discussions! A special thank you to the School Social Work Association of America for their support of the field of school social work and to Mr. Kotatee Tamba, my graduate assistant, that worked on setting up the listserv so that we can build valuable professional relationships across the world.
