Social Work

This week on WCLK's The Local Take(Saturdays 8am), I'm speaking with Dr. Jenny L. Jones, Dean and Professor at the Whitney M. Young, Jr. School of Social Work at Clark Atlanta University. Dr. Jones is here to discuss last year's school centennial, and a new book that has resulted.


Even though they weren't able to have a proper celebration due to COVID-19, they commemorated the occasion by publishing a book: Find A Way or Make One-A Documentary History of Clark Atlanta University (1920 - 2020) by Alma Carten, Ph.D. I ask how the book came about. 


This week on WCLK's The Local Take we're talking about the National Professional Social Work Month with Terrilyn Rivers-Cannon, School Social Worker of The Year for 2019. 

Dr. Judi The People's Advocate returns Saturday, August 5 at 7:30 a.m. on Jazz 91.9 WCLK.  During this segment, Dr. Judith Crocker Billingsley talks with Dr. Benjamin Downs. Downs is a licensed clinical social worker working every day in the public school system with our young people. They'll talk about the role of a school social worker in helping families succeed academically, and in life.
