In Pennsylvania, the LSW license is granted after applying to the state, passing the Master’s level exam administered by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) and providing documentation of graduation from an accredited Graduate School of Social Work. Following completion of the MSW degree, the advanced clinical LCSW license may be earned after completing at least 3000 hours of post masters supervised clinical experience. This can be accumulated in no less than 2 years and no more than 6 years with no less than 500 hours and no more than 1500 hours per 12 month period credited towards the supervised clinical experience. Bryn Mawr offers an opportunity to acquire group supervision hours toward the LCSW through its Clinical Certificate Program.
The Social Work License Exam Prep Course, offered by The Center for License Information and Exam Prep at Bryn Mawr College Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research, has been designed to increase student success, while decreasing test anxiety, on the master’s (LSW) and clinical (LCSW) social work license exam. Special attention is given to practice theory, social work terminology, therapeutic strategies, treatment, practice techniques, ethics, social work values, DSM-IV, psychopharmacology, as well as diversity sensitive practice. The course includes helpful practice test questions, a study manual, and discussion. The comprehensive one-day sessions meet on selected Saturdays or Sundays. Participants provide their own lunch.
David B. Landsman-Wohlsifer, PhD, LCSW, is Diplomate and Certified member of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy. He is in private practice in Bala Cynwyd, and is an adjunct faculty member at Bryn Mawr College Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research and at the University of Pennsylvania School of Social Policy and Practice.
Cost of the one-day course is $140 and includes a study manual. Enroll online using the "Register Now" link at the top right of this page. NOTE: No discounts will apply to an individual's multiple registrations for the prep course.
