Abstract (Summary)

A quantitative study measured the attitudes of current MSW students regarding title protection. At the time of writing no other research had explored this issue. Participants were asked to rate how strongly they agreed or disagreed with 21 statements related to social work practice and title protection. Participants were recruited from CSWE accredited schools of social work in California. Participants completed the survey through Survey Monkey. The study had a total of 264 participants of which the majority of participants identified as female. The study found that current MSW students in California support title protection and report plans on becoming licensed. The findings of this study were consistent with the findings of previous research that explored deprofessionalization and reclassification issues. The study also found that participants supported the aspect of competency in the profession through education and ethical practice.
