levels. A survey of MSW and BSW Schools/Departments of Social Work in the

United States accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) is being

conducted by Drs. Ira A. Neighbors and Jay Hedgpeth of Southern University at

New Orleans (SUNO). This survey research is under taken to find out what

schools are offering training in forensic social work. This study is a replication of a

15 year earlier study that surveyed only MSW programs. This study is different in

that it includes both BSW and MSW programs. As well, the outcomes of the study

will provide material for presentations at various social work conferences and

publications in peer reviewed journals.
