South Bay/San Jose


The South Bay / San Jose Regional Chapter of CASSW has a rich history of collaboration, professional development and expertise, most recently led by William “Dick” Evans of San Jose State’s School of Social Work.

We are: a collection of child, youth and family-serving Social Workers with a commitment to collaboration and support for each other and high-quality services for our school communities.

We are multi-generational, multi-lingual, multi-ethnic and fully engaged in front-line, management and policy work on behalf of our clients in schools.

The South Bay / San Jose Regional Chapter of CASSW focuses on:

  • Case consultation and real-time problem solving on behalf of students and families.
  •  Professional development and coaching opportunities for interns, new graduates, ASWs, LCSWs, Supervisors, new University Instructors and other student-serving positions.
  • Intern recruitment and job search support.
  • Developmental and child-centric approaches to understanding and intervening in behavioral challenges.
  • Development of CEU and other opportunities for our membership and the community.
  •  Identifying additional content areas for discussion and inclusion in Social Work Education through our University partnerships.
