March Newsletter 2012

March is Social Work month. I am proud to be one. The following facts are from the article written by the Director of National Association of Social Workers Elizabeth J. Clark, PhD, ACSW, MPH in the March 2012 issue of NASW NEWS. There are 640,000 professional social workers. Our work is done in schools, prisons, courts, community health centers, mental health clinics, addiction recovery programs, skilled nursing facilities, hospitals, hospices, and private practice. Did you know that Leymah Gbowee, recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize for her organization of a women’s peace movement that brought an end to the Second Liberian Civil War in 2003 is a social worker? Frances Perkins, secretary of labor and social worker was the first woman to serve in the presidential cabinet in 1933. Other social work pioneers who made a difference are: Del Anderson who transformed veteran’s services, Bernice Harper for her hospital and hospice work, Joan O. Weiss who helped establish the field of genetic counseling, and Dale Masi who developed the field of employee assistance.

This month I am highlighting five different social workers and the jobs they do. Dr. LeslieBeth Wish will talk about her research of women in relationships. Mary Pender Greene will discuss tools she uses working with couples. Samira Beckwith will share with us what hospice work involves. Mary Raymer will talk about her book Leadership in Everyday Life: It Really is all About You. Clare Brown will inform us of the tasks of a nursing home social worker.

We had a historic social work event close to home this month. Budd Bell was installed in the Florida Hall of Fame. Elizabeth “Budd” Bell, of Tallahassee, served for 77 years as an advocate of women, children, the elderly, the mentally ill, and the disadvantaged. She helped pass the Child Care Bill, which secured the funding of early learning programs across Florida. Ms. Bell founded Kids Incorporated of the Big Bend in 1972. She worked to craft the Baker Act, which protects the rights of people with mental illness in the state of Florida. Budd founded the Clearinghouse on Human Services, a statewide advocacy coalition that includes over 100 organizations. She was a founding member of the National Association of Social Work. That is not all she did. Social worker Bell taught and mentored over 500 social work students. She also received the Eckerd Top 100 Women in the Nation Volunteer Award.

Even though I personally never met Ms. Bell I feel like I know her since her daughter Bonnie Gold Bell is a friend of mine and has been on my show. You can access her episode www.voiceamerica.com/episode/54589/healing-mandala-image-codes-for-wellness-and-the-wisdom-of-women-a-sacred-circle.
