History of Social Work

I will be the first to admit that when I was a student in my BSW program I was not the least bit interested in the history of my profession, but now as I look back I realize how foolish I was. Perhaps it has been due to spending time with a friend who is a History Professor or teaching more about the history of the social work profession in my classes but I understand now that history is incredibly important. To that end I want to share a great resource from the folks over at the Simmons School of Social Work and their Blog. They posted some great resources related to the topic of the History of Social Work recently and I think you should check them out. I plan to incorporate some of these into my classes in the future.
