Strengthening IDENTITY | Preserving INTEGRITY | Advocating PARITY
CSWA is happy to report that the Texas State Board of Social Work Examiners has voted today to overturn the rule change that was enacted last week to allow LCSWs to refuse to see clients on the basis of disability, sexual orientation or gender identity. For a more complete report go to the Texas Tribune article at https://www.texastribune.org/2020/10/27/texas-social-workers-lgbtq-disabilities-discrimination/ .
Many thanks go to CSWA Board member Kathy Rider, LCSW, a longtime advocate for clinical social work in Texas who was a major contributor to the effort to overturn the unethical rule.
