Abstract

Discusses the formation, membership, and accomplishments of the Section of Psychiatric Social Work of the American Association of Hospital Social Workers. Organizational problems and functional growth were examined. It is argued that it is essential in a small national organization which deliberately limits its membership that each member should contribute of his time and energy and cheerfully carry on and initiate committee work as part of his contribution to the growth of the organization as well as to the strengthening of the field it represents. Whether psychiatric social workers should should continue to function as a Section of the American Association of Hospital Social Workers or whether this Section should be disbanded and replaced by a separate organization is discussed. The relationship of psychiatric social workers to the fields of psychiatry and social work is also examined. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
