By consulting with more experienced social workers in the field, it shows you aim to grow in the area and gain new knowledge/skills to help your clients. As explained by the NASW 4.01b, "social workers should strive to become and remain proficient in professional practice and the performance of professional functions" (NASW, 2017).
