Forensic Social Work (FSW) has existed since the inception of social work practice over 100 years ago. This notable speciality that fuses social work and law has evolved over time. In 2016, the founder of the National Institute of Forensic Social Work (NIFSW) realized the need to create an organization in Canada to recognize the thousands of social workers whose daily practice and tasks intersect law and social work, and impacts clients at the micro, mezzo and macro levels. The NIFSW Is the first and only organization committed to establishing forensic social work as a recognized sub-specialty of social work practice in Canada. Join our virtual panel of FSW specialists on Wednesday, October 28, 2020 @ 6:00 pm AST as we discuss the evolution of Forensic Social work in Canada past, present and future.
