Presented by the Greater Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley Districts of CSCSW
Description: Direct from the source, join us as we hear from three key players to learn all you need to know to make the licensing process as easy as possible. Kim Madsen, Executive Officer of the Board of Behavioral Sciences, will present an overview of the licensing process, including registering as an Associate Social Worker (ASW), accruing hours for licensure, and taking the exams. Renee Lonner, LCSW, will briefly address common issues licensees face. In addition, recent licensees will discuss their experience with and offer advice for the licensing process. There will be ample time for questions and networking.
