The National Voice of Clinical Social Work
Strengthening IDENTITY | Preserving INTEGRITY | Advocating PARITY
The Clinical Social Work Association (CSWA) is a national individual membership organization dedicated to providing essential services, products, professional support, and national identity for Clinical Social Workers.
The CSWA 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 transformed it into an individual membership association in order to provide more effective and efficient services.
CSWA 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.
