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.
Each session will take place on Friday (6:00PM - 8:00PM) and Saturday (9:00AM - 5:00PM).
