GSSW Licensure Prep Course


  • Session Content

    GSSW's Licensure Preparation Study Sessions will help you prepare for the social work licensing exam. Taught by a GSSW alumnus, the course includes thinking skills, test-taking strategies and how to approach the exam questions, and it reviews each of the four primary knowledge/content areas:

    • Human development, diversity and behavior in the environment
    • Assessment, diagnosis and treatment planning
    • Psychotherapy, clinical interventions and case management
    • Professional ethics and values

    After the content review for each section, the class discusses the correct answer and rationale for practice questions. This format will allow you to identify your strengths and weaknesses. You’ll also have an opportunity to practice with questions from the Association of Social Work Boards group practice exam.
