Comments on HB 6837

Christine Jowdy wrote 8 months ago

Social workers need additional training in domestic violence and the law. Reducing their training would make it more difficult for the justice system that is inundated with false reporting and inept social workers. It would also place hardship on the public that seeks these individuals for support when they are not up to date on the most recent trainings and knowledge in their industry.
