Discussion 2: State Licensure
Licensure represents the ability to practice under the title of social worker. Each state regulates the profession and sets the requirements to be licensed to practice in that state. Even when regulations vary, all states require licensed social workers to have graduated from a CSWEaccredited program and pass the national ASWB exam. This assures that those who receive the title of social worker have met the criteria developed to demonstrate proficiency in meeting the demands associated with the profession. This is referred to as title protection, and protecting the title means that individuals not appropriately trained for the profession cannot call themselves a social worker.
In this Discussion, you research the licensure requirements in your state and share them with your colleagues. Sharing the various states requirements can be useful should you be planning a relocation, or if you have ever worked in this or a related profession in another state.
Research the criteria for assuming a social work license in your state or country. You will want to research the regulations put forth by your states licensing board.
Consider the benefits offered by title protection and maintenance of licensure standards.
