From the Pen of NASW-Nevada's Executive Director Kyle Hillman
NASW Opposes Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) Exams
The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) opposes the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) social work licensing exams after a review of ASWB data shows significant disparities in pass rates for prospective social workers of color, older adults, and those who speak English as a second language.
NASW is prepared to oppose the Social Work Interstate Compact Legislation being developed by the Council of State Governments (CSG) if the bill is not substantially improved, including the removal of provisions which codify the ASWB exams. NASW is eager to work with CSG to develop multi-state social work practice legislation.
In an August 2022 statement after the release of the ASWB data, NASW committed to working closely with its partners to propose innovative solutions that reduce harm and increase diversity at all levels of social work practice.
These efforts will initially target removal of non-independent social work practice exams which may be biased, and support efforts to strengthen competency measures.
NASW looks forward to working with its partners to implement these strategic initiatives and to promoting the diversity and well-being of the social work profession, and the health and well-being of the populations social workers serve.

See My Color: Why Racial Colorblindness is Unethical
More than 50 years after Dr. King's speech, individuals continue to use his words to justify their claim of being racially colorblind. Racial colorblindness is modern-day racism and denies the racial disparities that continue to exist in various systems, including healthcare, education, and the criminal justice system. In the helping profession, not only is it unrealistic to be racially colorblind, it is dangerous and does more harm than good. If you don't see my color, you can't see me. And if you can't see me how can you empathize with my racial experiences, accept my whole being and validate my perspectives?

LGBTQ+ Equity, Diversity, Inclusion: “Somewhere” Over the Rainbow"
The National Institutes of Health have designated sexual and gender minorities (SGM), also known as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, Two-Spirit, intersex, and other people.
The National Institutes of Health have designated sexual and gender minorities (SGM), also known as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, Two-Spirit, intersex, and other people who do not “fit” within the traditional heteronormative binaries as health disparate populations. SGM experience significantly higher rates of mood, anxiety, and behavioral/substance use disorders, suicidality among other mental health issues. Emerging evidence indicates that SGM also have significantly higher rates of some chronic health conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and diabetes. In this presentation, Dr. Hoy-Ellis will share how past and ongoing marginalization, exclusion, and discrimination are the ‘causes of these health conditions through the framework of the Health Equity Promotion Model. He will also offer key strategies for providing culturally sensitive, effective services for SGM, from adolescence through older adulthood.

Cultural Diversity, Cultural Competence, and Ethical Social Work Practice
The United States of the 21st century is a patchwork land of many cultures: racial, ethnic, religious, geographic, gender, age, and even physical status. Each culture has its own worldview, relationship guidelines, family structure, spiritual mindsets, and values. In their work, social workers inevitably encounter persons from cultures different from their own, and these differences can be challenging obstacles to effective, ethical practice.
The values of the profession, as articulated in the NASW Code of Ethics, ask us to honor the dignity and worth of our clients, to respect their autonomy, and to practice competently. The ethical mandate of competence includes what has been called “Cultural Competence”.
We will address the idea that some situations may make ethical competence impractical or impossible, and approaches to these situations. We will also address the benefit, when working cross-culturally, of maintaining an attitude of humility and interest in other cultures.

News to highlight!
Bill could boost affordable housing in Nev.
More affordable housing units could be built for Nevada residents with mental health conditions or disabilities, or who have lower incomes, under a bill that would raise the real property transfer tax by 20 cents for every $500 of value for building such housing. Because the legislation includes a tax increase, support from two-thirds of each of the state House and Senate would be required.Full Story: Nevada Current (Carson City) (1/19)
