    Please join us at our next support group for Social work students and ASWs.

    Feeling lost, stressed, excited? Don't have time for the self care everyone keeps talking about? You are not alone! 

    Bring your questions and concerns, share your journey and connect with others, through this open group for any social work student or ASW in need of support.  The group will meet with members once a month to discuss topics related to being a social work student or graduate in pursuit of a clinical license.

    The forum will provide a semi-structured discussion in a safe and encouraging space. Topics are expected to be broad in range but may include: internships, managing hours and licensing exams, supervisors and supervision.  The goal of this group is to meet with other aspiring clinical social workers and share successes, challenges, stressors and ethical issues.

    Group will meet on Zoom the third Thursday of each month from 5:00 to 6:00.  Cost is free to members and non-members.

    If you have any questions about the support group, please contact Emily Plain, MSW |   cscswgla@gmail.com

    If you are not a member join today - click here to learn more

    This Consultation/Support Group does not award CEUs.

    Retirement! Is it on the horizon for you? The California Society for Clinical Social Work (CSCSW) invites you to join its Retirement Discussion Group (RDG). 

    Free group for CSCSW Members who are thinking about retiring

    The group will provide a mutually supportive space for participants to explore how it's done, logistics, tapering down, clinical issues with clients, and our feelings about it. As we benefit from consultation and assistance at the beginning and middle phases of our careers, it is no different when it comes to closing out a fulfilling career in a way that we feel is ethically and practically sound. 

    Make a cup of coffee and join us 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

    "Real Talk", a clinical consultation/support group developed with the oversight of the CSCSW's Diversity, Equity and Transformation (DET) Committee, the purpose of which is to provide a space for clinical social workers who identify as being Black, Indigenous, Mixed Race, or Person of Color (BIPOC) to meet on a monthly basis. The focus of this group is to provide an opportunity for networking, building solidarity, exploring intersectionality and decolonizing our practice. 

    This group is a closed group for individuals who self-identify as Black, Indigenous or Person of Color (BIPOC). The group's objective is to provide a brave space for those in the field to process the ongoing violence against and politicizing of minority groups' lives.

    This email reminder is sent out widely to all contacts and is not filtered by how individuals self-identify; therefore, if you have received this email but do not identify as BIPOC, we ask that you respect the intention of this group by not logging in to the meeting. However, we invite you to participate in our monthly CSCSW Diversity, Equity and Transformation (DET) Committee meetings as an ally. As a member of CSCSW, you are invited to attend a variety of open groups such as the Telehealth Consultation/Support Group, Support Group for Social Work Students and ASWs, and Ethics Consultation Group.



    This group is FREE; however, donations to CSCSW or the JAF Scholarship Fund are welcome.

    Please note that this group does NOT provide supervision to its members and no CEU’s are offered.

    "Real Talk" will be held via Zoom on a monthly basis. Those who register for the group will be sent a link to participate.

    Cost:

    Members – FREE
    Non-Members - FREE
