About Us


What is the Clinical Social Work Association?

The Association is a national individual membership organization dedicated to providing essential services, products, professional support, and national identity for Clinical Social Workers.

The Association is an outgrowth of the Clinical Social Work Federation, a 30+ year old national organization with a rich and successful history of advocacy on behalf of Clinical Social Workers. As a Federation, the organization worked through its state societies, however, in May 2006 its Board of Directors transfomed it into an individual membership association in order to provide more effective and efficient services.

The Association membership consists of clinical social workers, new professionals (clinical social workers who have graduated within the last four years), emeritus members, and students.

While primarily an individual membership organization, the Association does believe that strong state societies are as important as a strong national organization. We have, therefore, made provisions that allow state societies to affiliate with the Association. Click here for a list of affiliated state societies.

     We were glad to note this month that NASW is joining us in pursuing our goals for Medicare parity. The more the social work community is united on legislative goals that benefit all LCSWs and our patients, the more successful we are likely to be.
