Transferring LCSWs Across States

07 Sep 2017 10:42 PM | CSWA Administrator (Administrator)

With all the environmental challenges we are facing – flooding in Texas, fires and smoke in the Northwest and California, anticipated hurricanes in Florida, South Carolina and up the east coast – it may be hard to think about something as mundane as how to transfer our licenses when we move to a different state.  But this is a situation I have had many people tell me they struggled with so I urge everyone to look at this post in case you have been in this situation.

The Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) is launching an effort to make transferring an LCSW easier by creating more reciprocity between state boards.  This will not be easy as state boards have vested interests in their own laws and rules.  Nonetheless, I hope who has an experience to share will go to

This will be used as the base for making the case to the boards that this is an important issue for LCSWs and should be made easier than it is.

Thanks for your help.  I hope everyone gets through this weekend as well as possible.
