About the Author

Anthony Bibus (PhD, University of Minnesota; MA, University of Virginia,) is professor of social work at Augsburg College. As a member of the Minnesota Board of Social Work, he led several legislative committees and task forces engaged to develop and implement a comprehensive revision of the social work practice act in Minnesota as well as a variety of other regulatory policies. In addition to a major report for the Board of Social Work on licensing exemptions, his various publications address field education, supervision, cultural competence, child welfare, family-based services, international social work, welfare reform, and work with involuntary clients.

Needha Boutté-Queen (PhD, University of Houston; AM, University of Chicago) is associate professor of social work at Texas Southern University. Professor Boutté-Queen has worked with the Lutheran Social Services of Kansas and Oklahoma Emergency Foster Care and Quality Assurance programs, the Illinois Facility Fund, Depelchin Children's Center Resource and Grants Management Department, and Spaulding for Children (Houston). Her dissertation, "Identifying Barriers to Obtaining Social Work Licensure," was developed as a result of barriers faced as she moved between the states of Illinois, Oklahoma, and Texas following her graduation from the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration.
