The Missouri Society for Clinical Social Work grew out of a national grassroots movement to promote, protect and advocate for clinical professionals. In 1970, six state societies formed the National Federation of Societies for Clinical Social Work, now known as the Clinical Social Work Association. Out of that movement, many new state societies were organized, including the MSCSW in 1982.
Through an organized information campaign, MSCSW was instrumental in establishing licensure for Master’s level Social Workers in the state of Missouri in 1989.
Today we are working to protect our profession and licensure by monitoring state and federal legislation and regulatory activity. In addition, we are working to advocate for our clients and the Clincial Social Work profession in the insurance industry.
If you are a Clinical Social Worker in Missouri, we need your support. Together we are stronger. Help the Missouri Society for Clinical Social Work continue its mission of providing resources and support for Clinical Social Workers.
