The Clinical Social Work Association offers the benefit of a HelpLine for its members who have questions about practice issues, ethical dilemmas and forensic or legal concerns related to cases that are active or closed.  You can access the HelpLine by calling the number on this website or using the email address provided. 

The HelpLine is a resource for questions about testifying in court related to child custody, child abuse, or complicated divorce cases.  Clinicians may receive information on the differences between a lay and expert witness and and how to respond to a subpoena, amonst other valuable resources.   

Other questions may include, but are not limited to, the following examples:

  • how to begin or close a private practice
  • how to utilize collections processes when client’s or insurance companies don’t pay
  • ethical issues about practice and supervisory concerns, and
  • resources for treatment centers.   

The HelpLine is a benefit of membership in CSWA.  Your questions and concerns are taken seriously and treated with confidentiality.  We hope you will JOIN TODAY and use the HelpLine in the future should you have questions.
