Coalition for Clinical Social Work
The Coalition for Clinical Social Work is committed to psychodynamic thinking about the practice of social work across diverse settings. Our dedication to social justice is at the heart of our organization and informs all CCSW programs & education. We value the importance and power of community collaboration, clinical development and theoretically-informed practice. CCSW works to preserve the unique professional identity of social work and our capacity to practice meaningful clinical work with all client populations.
