School Social Worker
Ann-Marie McBride, MSW
School social work is a specialized area of practice within the broad field of social work. In North Carolina, school social workers are licensed through the Department of Public Instruction. School social work practice includes home visits, assessment, group and individual counseling, program development, conflict resolution, crisis intervention, consultation and coordination of school and community services.
For more information about School Social Work, please visit the North Carolina School Social Workers'Association website at ncsswa.org or the School Social Work of America Association at sswaa.org
