I viewed Chicago Tonight discussion of Newtown on December 17th. It was interesting and helpful. But although clinical social workers provide more mental health services than any other profession in the United States, and despite there being many clinically trained school social workers my profession was neither represented nor mentioned.

Virtually the same situation occurred on the immediatealy preceing Newshour, althoug one M.D., I presume a psychiatrist, did refer to "social Workers' among those professions who are in a position to help in crises.

Although I am retired it saddens me that after all these years the media does not wish to provide my profession its due.
