40TH ANNIVERSARY COMMEMORATIVE ISSUE
Celebrating 40 years of passion!
President‟s Message...
On behalf of the Executive Committee of
MASW, I would like to wish all our members
and friends HAPPY 40TH ANNIVERSARY!
Professional practice – how to translate the
competency standards into measurable outcomes in social work practice and education?
For many who have been with MASW all
these years, they definitely know that we
have come a long way. The journey has not
been easy – we lack financial and human
resources, and public recognition of the profession - but I can proudly say that MASW
has contributed immensely to the
profession, to the community and to the
nation. You can see our list of milestones in
the following page.
Professional education – how to provide
relevant, accessible and flexible education
pathways for non-graduate practitioners to
qualify as social workers? How to develop
postgraduate courses for specialist practice?
All these achievements are attributed to the
unwavering commitment and passion of the
past and present Executive Committees as
well as members and supporters in advancing the social work agenda in Malaysia. We
would like to thank our pioneers, the Ministry
of Women, Family & Community Development, in particular the Department of Social
Welfare, United Nations Children’s Fund, the
Ministries of Health and Higher Education,
National Anti-Drug Agency, the various nonprofit agencies, and all social workers and
social welfare practitioners for your support.
Indeed it has been 40 YEARS OF PASSION
that has been driving MASW forward!
Today MASW is in the midst of planning for
the future – at least for the next ten years, if
not the next forty. MASW needs to prepare
itself strategically for when the Social
Workers Act becomes a reality in the very
near future. So what are the challenges
MASW must take on in the immediate
future? Here are some points for all of us to
ponder. Your comments, feedback, and
contribution of time and energy will be
greatly appreciated:
1
Professional supervision – how to enhance
professional supervision and expand the pool
of trained supervisors and trainers?
Professional development – how to develop
credible programs which will allow social
workers to earn Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits?
Professional career path – how to ensure an
attractive career development scheme of
service for both public and non-profit
organizations?
Professional expansion – how to increase
work force numbers to meet community
needs and further develop practice in
specialized fields like mental health, criminal
justice, child protection, school social work,
disability and elderly care?
Professional sustainability - how to develop
financial resources for sustainability of
MASW and other social work activities?
Professional advocacy - how to continuously
promote the profession and ensure it remains
as a relevant and essential social service for
managing social issues?
Although MASW is not a big association, it is
an organization of high aspirations committed
to promoting the care, safety and protection
of service users and the well-being of its
members. There is much to be done
and, in commemorating our 40th year,
let us consciously and strategically work
in partnership towards enhancing
professionalism for the well-being of our
society.
I hope to have you all continue with us in
our exciting journey for the next Forty
Years!

40TH ANNIVERSARY COMMEMORATIVE ISSUE
MASW is 40 years old and growing…!
Editorial
" hings do not
T
change, we
change" Henry David
Thoreau
And the last 8 years have been
amazing years! We have
created several milestones
along the way and will mark
many more milestones on this
exciting continuous journey
towards professional practice,
education,
training
and
research. Social workers have
committed themselves to
establishing key competency
standards for practice and to
drafting of a Social Workers
Bill to register the title of Social
Worker as well as to ensure
competent practice and service
delivery to service users.
We are moving to keep in step
with the changing needs of our
service users, the community
and the country.
The recent political cry for
change is a clear indication of
the people’s expectations for
fair and just governance. That
should trickle down to fair and
just social services as well. Thus
social work practitioners need
to be current and updated in
their knowledge and skills to
face the challenges of difficult
and complex modern day social
issues and situations.
MASW supports the IFSW’s
call in its celebration of World
Social Work Day 2013 to
promote social and economic
equalities. This theme is the
focus of our First National
Convention of Social Workers
on Saturday 18th May 2013 at
Armada Hotel, Petaling Jaya.
We will have five speakers to
present their views from a
global perspective, and from
local practice in the field of
child protection, juvenile
justice, patient care and
marginalized
communities.
Let’s make a success of this
event!

Post Conference (Child Protection): Thoughts and the Big Picture
by Jim Lim, Independent Social Work Consultant, Penang
The Child Protection Conference
organised and hosted by the Ministry
of Women, Family and Community
Development with UNICEF and held
on 20th-22nd November 2012 at
Kuala Lumpur, owed much of its
success to the enthusiastic participants from ASEAN countries, and
also to the seamlessly efficient
organisation, mainly by UNICEF‟s
Malaysia-based personnel. Credit is
deservedly due too to the Ministry
and UNICEF for continuing with the
child protection discussions following earlier developments at the
ASEAN levels of governments.
The subject theme, „Child Protection‟
by itself, is enough to spur even the
most indifferent into thinking, “How
do we do this? Equally, although no
less important, is the follow-up of
“What is being done to protect
children”? Such a „get together‟ involving the representatives and professionals from our large region is
therefore eagerly anticipated.
It was reasonably well attended, as I
had observed. The slight let down
perhaps being the empty seats in the
main conference hall at the start of
the proceedings with the
distinguished speakers setting the
scene. I was told that all seats were
pre-booked but a shame many had
not turned up on that first day; as far
as I was aware, most were from the
civil servants‟ cohort. Still, not to be
disheartened, the conference opened
with the expected welcome from
Malaysia‟s Secretary-General of the
MWFCD, followed by UNICEF‟s
Representative to Malaysia and this
was followed by an upbeat presentation by the ASEAN Regional Advisor
for Child Protection. The keynote
address was expertly delivered by a
familiar name, Dr. Pauline
Meemeduma, Child Protection Consultant from Perth, Australia.
The conference programme was
carefully organised to stay true to its
theme of a systems based approach
to child protection, with plenary
sessions head listing subjects ranging
from best practices to structures, to
organisation oversights and on
models of partnerships and job
specifications underpinned by

competency based practice. All said
the conference showed all you would
probably need to know about developing effective child
protection
strategies and building competency
and organisational capacity. The key
question is how do you put all that
into action? And, be reasonably successful at that? No doubt, this task
constitutes a continuing journey in
our country.
The conference threw up, not unexpectedly, all kinds of
obstacles
prevalent in all the countries covered;
difficulties arising from cultural
diversity to institutional barriers.
Proposed solutions for successes vary
enormously, complicated by the
different stages of development
amongst the countries concerned.
Therefore, each country needs to put
its own house in order, perhaps learning from each other along the way,
but equally conscious of the need to be
well prepared for the long arduous
journey ahead.
That said, what is the scenario in our
country? And, what lessons can we
take from this conference, for
Malaysia? Let me try to address the
approach to the assessment of the
situation as I see it, in the following
way. Two simple questions spring to
mind 1. What is in place already,
2. What needs developing?
What is in place without a shadow of
doubt is the enthusiasm and talent
amongst the workforce which I came
across during the conference and this
applied to both the public sector and
the non-governmental (Third) sector.
The commitment and beliefs held,
with respect to social work‟s legitimate role in protecting vulnerable
children was prevalent, and the
determination to make things better
for children also came across loud and
clear.
In my view, but somewhat on a „stand
alone‟ basis and lacking clarity of
enforcement, is the existing legislation
for safeguarding children (Child Act)
but compared to some of the ASEAN
neighbours, Malaysia‟s legislative
protection appears enviable. However,
the lack of monitoring or assessment
as to this safeguarding law‟s
effectiveness or otherwise means
that one cannot be confident that
children are being adequately
protected. It is unfair of me in this
regard to make assertions if there is
no available data to conclude. I
would however opine that it is no
different to the often quoted line, as
with most legislation with the aim of
deterrence, i.e. “instead of building
fences at a cliff‟s edge to prevent
people falling over, it is perhaps best
to invest in ambulances at the bottom of the cliff to record the ones
that fall.”
What I am trying to say is, like some
legislation, one cannot accurately
predict outcomes except to
reasonably conclude likelihood(s) on
the „balance of probabilities‟
principle. Of course, in more
straightforward regulations, it is
possible to measure and record the
outputs and sometimes, assess outcomes.
The various children stakeholder
organisations in Malaysia are visible
and functioning, with the Government‟s statutory agency managing
and providing the bulk of services
for those „children in need‟ and the
non-governmental sector
impressively contributing and
complementing services for both
children and their carers. As to how
effective and how successful those
services are is more difficult to
gauge but there‟s still some way to
go, as witnessed by recent press
reports of children‟s complaints and
perhaps, whistle-blowing from
within organisations.
There is an inevitable bias towards
services for children who are at risk
from society and less so, towards
children (mostly older) who are a
risk to society. As is the case, the
Government currently provide the
bulk services for the latter group, in
the form of corrective juvenile
institutions, community service
orders, etc. Not unexpectedly, NGOs
have greater coverage with the
former.
Next, what is not so satisfactory and
hence, should be developed or
improved?
The first is „institutional‟ and this is
Volume 1, Issue 1
From page 4...
likely to be the most challenging.
Children are vulnerable at all times
and those denied a family life are
more vulnerable to abuse. Hence, the
Government must step in and in
almost all cases the Government
appear to have done just that. However, does it do so with the knowledge
and confidence that its resources and
facilities are „fit for purpose‟? For
example, for a start, are those
children „in need‟ adequately cared
for in conditions which reflect as
much and as far as possible, normality? Do they tend to be „housed and
cared‟ for in family settings or rather
in more convenient large institutions
resembling „Victorian workhouses‟ at
best and penal institutions at worst? I
believe in reality, the latter is more
prevalent than the former.
The second is an absence of a genuine
understanding of child protection and
what this entails amongst the various
agencies concerned. Accepting that
child protection is everybody‟s duty
(society‟s business) and not just social
workers‟, it is sad to hear when the
Police are slow to act or an examining
doctor readily accepts the explanation
of the carer / parent instead of
persevering to listen to the child. So, a
high profile public education
campaign is needed followed by
government supported initiatives to
strengthen partnership working and
collaboration at multi-disciplinary
and m ul ti -agency l evel s. All
institutions and agencies must adhere
to this, including the private sector. In
short, there must be multi-agency
commitment and nothing less.
Institutions of higher learning have a
vital role in disseminating both the
public education through its marketing and its student community. There
are grounds for research on partnership work, with the aim of raising it
above communal organisational
territorial boundaries and beyond
complex institutional inertia, which
so often obstruct effective working
together.
The third is an absence of a regulated
social work workforce which the
public can easily identify with so as to
give assurance and confidence in its
capability and competence to protect
children within society. We therefore
require the current Social Workers
Draft Bill to become law. Closely on
its heels, we need a rigorous assessPage 5
5
ment of where we are at, in terms of
skills and competencies and how best
the higher learning institutions are
producing our future social work workforce. The Social Work Council must
have a major say on overall standards,
academic and practice matters when
registering the qualifying programme
providers. The current consortium of
Universities should jointly ensure that
its standards are comparatively
excellent and have no hesitation in
securing overseas accreditation or help
in developing graduate and post graduate programmes, the latter perhaps
concentrating on skills development and
spe ci al i st pra cti ce are as. N ew
programmes should be
seriously
considered to ensure that those who are
less academically inclined can be
recognised too, through qualification, to
a more practice-led study, leading to
say, an equivalent tertiary course, a
Diploma in Social Work.
The workforce planning and developmental initiatives need government
support and investment as it will lead to
a career „of choice‟ by future student
generation. This will help in attracting
potential bright students, auguring well
for the future and will go a long way
towards raising the profile of social
workers in protecting and safeguarding
children. Universities and programmes
aiming for the qualifying degrees
should also exploit the talent and
resources within the statutory agencies
and NGOs and secure joint assessed
practice arrangements, integrating
learning and reinforcing theory and
practice.
The fourth area for development is in
the whole area of monitoring standards
for safeguarding and ensuring the
people in contact with children are
properly vetted for suitability. In fact,
not only do we require suitable people,
we also require safe premises and demand that services provided be run by
proper and fit organisations. When
there is a lack of regulation and
inspection, children can be exposed to
risk. There are countless instances
reported and sometimes unreported, of
the exploitation and abuse of children.
No social institution is exempted from
such a charge. In such a situation, we
are often indebted to the relentless
efforts by individual whistle-blowers
and often, the campaigning efforts from
the NGO sector. However, NGOs can
sometimes become a dominant force on
their own and display their own lack of
accountability, doing things as they
see fit and relying on their public
good credentials to paper over any
perceived criticism. I am not
criticising NGOs per se, far from it,
but I believe that due to the
inadequate social protection laws in
any developing country, NGOs
inevitably fill those gaps and many do
well in meeting „social needs‟ that
would otherwise have been neglected. However, they do need to
subscribe and subordinate to the
prevailing collective partnership
protocols and procedures relevant to
child protection. I am also surprised
to note that charities in general are
not as robustly monitored and audited
in Malaysia for how they spend those
hard earned donations from the
public, principally in the name of
their beneficiaries. Some could ask,
“Do they really?”
The fifth is enforcement.
Social
protection legislation should be
accompanied by adequate resources
to ensure that negligence and
corporate failure to rescue, to
support, and to care for the
vulnerable will be met with the
harshest condemnation by society. I
am talking about penalties levied
against institutions that fail to deliver,
beginning with regulations around
setting up, meeting standards and
regular inspections to ensure
continuous safe and competent
service delivery.
The sixth is professional value base.
As an infrequent cynic on human
behaviour, I often tell my social work
staff that in general, the public is not
interested in matters concerning
social services or social work unless it
happens to them personally or it
happens to their close ones, e.g. their
families. So, rather bluntly put, do not
expect the public to be spontaneous in
showing care to all or to dig deep, to
contribute funds. Religion does most
of the caring stuff, all the peace and
neighbourly caring messages through
teachings and ecumenical moral
codes and values. However, social
workers must always have that level
of consciousness of how their
community prevail, whether they
exist or they struggle to survive and,
above all, the ability to sympathise
and if appropriate, empathise with a
person‟s tragedy and mishap, in order
to go about helping with the
necessary change process.
As
Microsoft
From page 5...
professionals engaged with assisting
people, we are more sensitive to forces
within society and how it displaces
minorities and why we cannot avoid
being agents of social change to some
degree. In a multi-cultural and multifaith society, we need to rise to the
challenge posed by such complexities
and avoid any „one size fits all‟
approach. Similarly, we must be
resistant to communal racist overtones
prevalent in our midst and fight the
divisive forces which seek to displace
minority groups within society.
The seventh is perhaps quite
inevitable, as this is political. There is
no tradition in our country unlike in
the UK when the Labour Party in 1945
laid the foundations of the „Welfare
State‟ and where there is cross-party
consensus in matters of healthcare
provision, social care and social work.
In Malaysia, it appears that only the
ruling party has a monopoly and
apparatus of developing and speaking,
and the Opposition is derided for their
views or contribution. Perhaps it is
more to do with the country‟s level of
pol i ti cal m aturi ty an d wh en
defensiveness and self-interest by
politicians will become less prevalent.
I sensed that unlike Western countries
where the civil service is politically
non-partisan, in practice, this is the
reverse in Malaysia. In my former job
as Director of Social Services, my role
was as an adviser on social services.
The politicians appear to respect that,
and would take account of my views
when implementing local policies
affecting social work and social care
provision. As I often suggest to
politicians, “you produce the policies,
and I (my department) will implement
them”! The current stark political and
service centralisation structures we
have here, with many key services
expected to respond to far- away local
communities is rather expecting too
much. It is difficult with such
centralised arrangements, to be able to
respond effectively or, be sensitive to
local community settings and needs.
On a wider front, there appears to be
no universal system for social care for
all categories of „people in need‟,
children included, but more so lacking
for those who are at the end of their
lives or those in need of constant care
and attention. If a severely disabled
child is left without adequate support
and services to the carers, the State
6
could be complicit in the abuse of
that particular vulnerable child.
Similarly, if an educationally
handicapped child is not being
treated early on, his/her life
chances will be severely hindered,
and in this situation, are we talking
about acceptable child protection?
There is much to be done in the
child protection and childcare field
and conversely enough to be
excited about too, with increasing
attention and public information
about community safety, greater
democracy, and political
accountability. Let us hope that a
democratically elected government
will begin to take note of this major
area for development and prioritise
developments in the area of social
protection and in particular, social
work. The government must
publish its intentions and policies
on services for children and
vulnerable adults and within an
improved social care infras tru c tu r e, u n d er pi n n e d by
principl es of safeguarding,
protection and increasing life
chances.
Let us look forward to a bright
future!

Celebration of World Social Work Day 2013
@ UMMC
Medical social workers at
UMMC celebrated World Social
Work Day for the first time on
22 March 2013. Puan Siti Norhayati binti Harun, the newly appointed Department Head, reminded MSWs to apply the
principles and values of social
work in their daily practice, and
to provide a holistic service. She
commented on the substantial
increase in the number of
MSWs in the hospital, and
agreed that the Department will
celebrate WSWD every year to
show appreciation of services
rendered by MSWs.
Mr Loo Leong Heng, a senior
MSW, delivered a talk on
‘Social Work – Back to Basics’
during which he highlighted the
misconception that the general
public and hospital staff have
of social work and pointed out
the differences between philanthropy, volunteerism, welfare work and social work. Staff
received memento badges to
commemorate the event.
@ USM
The Social Work Programme,
USM celebrated World Social
Work Day 2013 on 18.03.2013.
At this event, the social work
students established a team of
volunteers named “S-Crew”,
aimed at providing outreach
services to the various target
groups and agencies which
require student volunteer
services. This effort is in line
with this year's Social Work
Day 2013 theme - Promoting
Social and Economic Equalities.
The launching was officiated by
Dr. Mohamad Zaini Abu Bakar,
Deputy Dean of School of
Social Sciences. Also present at
the launching were the Social
Work Programme Chair, Assoc.
Professor Dr. Azlinda Azman,
Dr. Harry Hikmat from the
Ministry of Social Welfare,
Republic of Indonesia, and a
group of 14 students from
Universiti
Padjadjaran
(UNPAD), Indonesia who were
at that time participating as
exchange students in the Social
Work Programme and School
of
Social
Sciences.
The
7
celebration included special
presentations by Encik Ahmad
Nazir bin Long and Encik
Mohd
Zahir
Harun,
representing the National
Anti-Drug Agency, Penang and
the Timur Laut District
Welfare
Office,
Penang,
respectively. The presentations
provided
useful
information
on
the
possibilities as well as
opportunities for working very
closely
with
student
volunteers in the future.
The first activity upon launching of the “S-Crew” was the
visit by the student volunteers
to Pusat Pemulihan Dalam
Komuniti (PDK) Orang Pekak
Pulau Pinang for a ‘gotongroyong’ activity at the center.
The activities included an
interaction session with the
children at the agency and
later cleaning of the surrounding areas of the center. The
event was also supported by
the Timur Laut District
Welfare Office, Penang and the social work staff of
USM.
