Licensing and Ethics

 

 

NASW/Texas does not license social workers.  We do follow professional regulation closely.  Below are resources from NASW/Texas related the history of licensing and NASW/Texas coverage and response to licensing issues.  Unless otherwise noted, these are NOT documents of the Texas State Board of Social Worker Examiners.
