The Touro College Graduate School of Social Work and its Alumni Association provide alumni/alumnae with opportunities to further their careers through mentoring, case consultation, continuing education, licensure test preparation and other activities while maintaining the highest ethical standards.
According to the NASW, the National Association of Social Workers, professional development is an essential activity for ensuring quality social work services. Professional development and continuing education is a self-directed process, which requires each social worker to assume responsibility for the growth of his or her own professional knowledge. Every Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) and Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) must complete approved continuing education courses in order to renew the license. Requirements differ by state and the New Jersey and New York State requirements may be accessed through the links in the resource section below.
Social workers are ethically required to keep informed of current research, theory, and techniques that guide social work practice to better serve clients and constituents. The Touro Social Work Alumni Association offers extensive licensing test prep, continuing education courses and professional educational programs.
To find out more on how to participate in our continuing education programs, our exam prep courses or any other questions about licensure/renewal, please contact Dr. Eric Levine, Director of Social Work Alumni Engagement and Continuing Education at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-463-0400, ext. 5195.
