Mentor is defined as a “wise and trusted counselor.” In clinical social work, mentorship is a voluntary process in which developing professionals may enhance their skills and professional identities through interaction with a role model of their choice. Clearly distinguished from clinical supervision and psychotherapy, clinical mentorship embraces a collegial relationship that is based on shared professional interests and mutual respect.
The California Society for Clinical Social Work invites you to join:
THE NEW PROFESSIONALS MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
A voluntary program to assist new clinical social workers with professional development and career planning
We have established a panel of qualified clinical mentors who can make themselves available to individuals and groups seeking dialogue in these areas.
This program is available at NO COST to CSCSW members.
CLINICAL CONSULTATION GROUP PROGRAM
The purpose of this program is to provide free advertising of existing clinical consultation groups to members of the California Society for Clinical Social Work. Clinical consultation is differentiated from clinical supervision as it is a voluntary activity focused on the clinical education of the consultee, rather than a mandatory process that determines the nature of client care and evaluates the performance of the supervisee.
We will assist you in promoting and/or creating a new group which we feel are beenficial to all members of the Society.
