The Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) accredits baccalaureate and master's level social work programs in the United States using the Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS), which outline 9 core competencies. The competencies and related practice behaviors are presented here in a grid along with ideas for faculty consideration derived by the authors, including relevant content from each chapter and examples of ways in which students can demonstrate the practice behaviors.
