2019 Licensure Prep Course:
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 night, 5:30 - 8:30 p.m. and the following Saturday, 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. All sessions are held at Craig Hall. Friday night dinner is included. Come comfortably dressed and ready to work hard!
Sessions are $275 and you are welcome to attend any or all of the sessions a year after your first payment. If you do attend more than once, it is important that you let us know when you plan to attend. Space in each session will be limited.
We will make every reasonable effort to provide accomdations needed. Any special requests should be made at least two weeks in advance to ensure adequate arrangements. Requests can be made at 303-871-2960. Contact Krislyn O'Sullivan with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
