This paper describes results from a survey of Schools of Social Work regarding their role in the preparation of socialworkers to assume professional responsibilities within work settings. The results clearly indicate that although social workers areincreasingly entering the work settings including employee assistance programs, there does not appear to be a dramatic increase inthe number of full fledged specialized occupational social work programs. Despite this small number of schools with specialized occupational social work concentration, an overwhelming number ofthem do incorporate this content in their curriculum.
