Have you thought about becoming an LCSW?  Have you thought it costs too much money to get it accomplished? If you answered yes to both questions, then you want to attend this workshop.

This workshop will increase your knowledge about the LCSW process to reduce the amount of time, money, and energy that you spend.  You won’t regret coming but will if you miss out.  Take the time to invest in yourself, you are worth it!!!

 

Social Workers who are interested in pursuing a license are operating under the NASW Ethical Value of Competence.

  • Value: Competence
  • Ethical Principle: Social Workers practice within their areas of competence, develop, and enhance their professional expertise.  Social Workers should continually strive to increase their professional knowledge, skills, and to apply them in practice.  Social Workers should aspire to contribute to the knowledge base of the profession.
  • See section 1.04 of the Code of Ethics listed below:
    Competence (a) Social workers should provide services and represent themselves as competent only within the boundaries of their education, training, license, certification, consultation received, supervised experience, or other relevant professional experience. (b) Social workers should provide services in substantive areas or use intervention techniques or approaches that are new to them only after engaging in appropriate study, training, consultation, and supervision from people who are competent in those interventions or techniques. (c) When generally recognized standards do not exist with respect to an emerging area of practice, social workers should exercise careful judgment and take responsible steps (including appropriate education, research, training, consultation, and supervision) to ensure the competence of their work and to protect clients from harm.

As Social Workers, we have a responsibility to uphold, represent, and advance the values of the profession and to help the profession make social services available to the general public.  Pursuing licensure is a way for Social Workers to engage in a lifelong learning to maintain competence as well as maintaining not only a high level of professional integrity but a high degree of professionalism throughout their careers.

In short, pursuing an LCSW is not only ethical in nature, it helps to strengthen the profession of social work in general, thus assuring that clients receive culturally-ethically responsive services by a qualified social service professional (LCSW).

Again, this workshop will assist reducing the stress, time, and money spent by Social Workers who are pursuing their LCSW.  We will be covering the LCSW process in PA and offering 1 CEU for Ethics for the event.
