If you are interested in pursuing licensure, we provide many resources to help you along this path. Becoming an Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) will allow you to practice independently, and it may also afford you more opportunities to supervise and mentor other social workers, manage agencies, provide consulting to businesses, schools and healthcare organizations, and serve as an expert witness during court cases.
The LCSW credential is one of several social work licenses granted by states nationwide, although the actual title may vary by state. An LCSW is a social work practitioner who has been approved by a state licensing board to provide comprehensive mental health services and assume greater responsibilities than a social worker who is not licensed. Aspiring LCSWs must generally earn a Master of Social Work (MSW) degree, complete additional coursework and clinical training, and pass licensure exams.
