Welcome to PSCSW

The Pennsylvania Society for Clinical Social Work (PSCSW) was established in 1971 to promote and advance specialization of clinical practice within the social work profession. It is an organization of clinical social workers who practice in a variety of settings including family agencies, mental health clinics, psychiatric hospitals, medical facilities, geriatric settings, schools, and private practice throughout Pennsylvania.

Legislative Alert - Practice Act
Great News!

We want to thank all PSCSW members who contacted their Senators about HB 1415. There are now two Bills - one in the House and one in the Senate. The House Bill is 1415, and the Senate Bill is 1078. (They are identical, but they are separate bills and will remain so.)

I’m happy to share that our Senate Bill, SB 1078, was officially introduced and referred to Senate Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure this weekend. Members stepped up to the challenge and helped us achieve a strong bipartisan bill with 25% of the Senate signed on and nearly half the Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure Committee. Here is the link to the bill.

We also want to thank Tara Breitsprecher, NASW-PA and David Tive for all their hard work in Harrisburg!!

Progress is being made!!
