In 1926 psychiatric social workers, who had traditionally provided aftercare to patients from psychiatric hospitals, pulled away from AAMSW.
By the 1950s AAMSW had matured with a steady membership of 2,500.
Consequently, the proposal in the early 1950s to consolidate all social work interests among the seven national organizations into a new National Association of Social Workers (NASW) was not embraced easily by the AAMSW.
