Social Work Journal Celebrates Silver School’s 50th Anniversary

September 28, 2012

The June 2012 issue of the Clinical Social Work Journal, titled “Agency-Based Clinical Practice With Vulnerable Populations: Knowledge Building for Practice and Partnership With Community Agencies,” commemorates the 50th anniversary of the NYU Silver School of Social Work.

Many articles are authored or co-authored by Silver School faculty members in collaboration with agency representatives, and address issues in current and future social work practice, such as the DSM-5, substance abuse, master’s and doctoral education, spirituality, and shared trauma.

Collectively, the articles celebrate the Silver School’s long-standing reputation for clinical social work excellence and the school’s mission, which includes a research-based focus on poverty and social justice, agency-based practice, and knowledge development for social work practice.

The issue was guest edited by Silver School Dean Lynn Videka and by Eda Goldstein, a long-time Silver School professor and one of the foremost social workers of contemporary psychoanalytical theory and practice, who died in June 2011. The issue is dedicated to Connie Silver (BS ’78, MSW ’79), a leader at both the Silver School and New York University.

Founded in 1973, the Journal is devoted to the advancement of clinical knowledge and acumen of practitioners, educators, researchers, and policymakers. Silver School associate professor Carol Tosone has served as editor-in-chief since 2006.
