The Institute for Clinical Social Work


Some clinicians may decide that a degree is not the right path for them at the moment, but they still want to advance their education. For this group, we offer two options, our Advanced Clinical Practice (ACP) and Inquiring Minds programs. While these programs do not lead to degrees, their members are a valued part of our community, and help us to broaden our perspectives.


Advanced Clinical Practice

This three-year program offers a unique opportunity to integrate theoretical and practical elements of clinical work, and to achieve a reliable, flexible, and grounded framework for lifelong professional growth. Courses are taught at the doctoral level, which means that participants obtain credit that can be applied to the pursuit of a Ph.D.


Inquiring Minds

The Inquiring Minds program allows non mental health professionals with graduate degrees to attend classes at ICSW that match their interests — whether it be one class, or several.
