Our one-year Clinical Practice Program (CPP) is designed for clinicians who want to enhance their clinical skills and be more effective in their practice settings. The CPP has three parts that ensure clinicians will obtain a rich and comprehensive experience that will deepen their understanding of the client’s emotional life and focus on the therapeutic relationship.
Participants in the CPP receive:
Twelve 2.5-hour Group Case Conferences, some with guest lecturers
Twelve 45- to 50-minute Individual Consultation meetings with advanced clinical consultants
Admittance to any ICSW Clinical Lecture hosted by ICSW in the 2012/13 academic year
Participants will earn 30 CEUs and a certificate upon completion. LSW and LPC participants seeking clinical supervision hours to help satisfy the 3000-hour requirement for state LCSW and LCPC licensure may make individual arrangements with ICSW consultants.
The 2012/13 Clinical Practice Program will begin in September 2012 and continue through April 2013 on the meeting dates below. Clinical Lectures and Group Case Conferences will be held at ICSW at the Robert Morris Center, 401 South State Street, 8th Floor. Individual Consultations will take place at times and locations mutually determined by the student and consultant, but most likely at the consultant’s office.
We are pleased to announce that ICSW graduate Dr. Michael Casali received the 2012 Adjunct Faculty of the Year award at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's Helen Bader School of Social Welfare. Congratulations, Michael!
The Journal of Trauma & Dissociation recently named an article by ICSW graduate Dr. Janet Migdow as “among the very best papers to be published” in the Journal during 2011. Dr. Migdow’s paper, “The problem with pleasure: Part II. The research,” received an honorable mention by the Journal’s Awards Committee.
We’re pleased to announce that our new master’s program in clinical counseling and psychotherapy has received approval from the Higher Learning Commission and is now accepting students for Fall 2012 enrollment.
The two-year master’s program is a non-resident, full-time course of study designed to prepare students for careers in counseling and psychotherapy, with a specific emphasis on the application of modern psychodynamic perspectives to clinical practice. After students complete the degree, they will be eligible to apply for state licensure (LPC). The program’s flexible framework consists of weekend courses and 2–3 days a week of clinical internship. Part-time options are also available.
