Dec 4, 2020

ClinicalSocialWorkersinPrivatePracticeNASW’s Task Force for Private Practice Guidelines is seeking public comments for the document, Clinical Social Workers in Private Practice:  A Reference Manual.

This manual provides a useful set of guidelines for clinical social workers starting a private practice and for seasoned clinical social workers seeking specific information related to the practice and business side of a private practice. Your comments are important to us and will determine how the task force moves forward.

The public comment period begins December 4, 2020 and ends January 19, 2021.  The manual is available for review and public comment. 

NASW staff and members are also invited to review this manual during the public comment period.  Chapters are welcome to post this information in their print and social media outlets.

Questions about the manual may be referred to me at 

Hope you have a great day!
