Audit Report

Welcome to the website for the Louisiana State Board of Social Work Examiners.

The Board was established when the legislature declared that, in order to safeguard the public heath, safety, and welfare of the people of this state against unauthorized, unqualified and improper practice of social work, it is necessary that a proper regulatory authority be established and adequately provided for.

Who is required to have a social work credential issued by the Board?  Any individual with a degree in social work either at the undergraduate or graduate level that is practicing social work in Louisiana.  Social work practice is the professional application of social work values, theories, and interventions to one or more of the following: enhancing the development, problem-solving, and coping capacities of people; promoting the effective and humane operations of systems that provide resources and services to people; linking people with systems that provide them with resources, services, and opportunities; developing and improving social policy; and engaging in research related to the professional activities. 

The practice of social work includes but is not limited to clinical social work, planning and community organization, policy and administration, research, and social work education.
