ICSW Doctoral Candidate Deployed to Newtown as Crises Therapist


ICSW doctoral candidate Lieutenant Commander Jonathan James (JJ) Lewis, was deployed to Newtown, CT yesterday in his capacity as a Health Services Officer and Clinical Social Worker for the United States Public Health Service. LCDR Lewis has — as do other ICSW students and alumni — a distinguished record in providing critical mental health services on behalf of our country under extreme circumstances.

Being called to assist in the wake of this horrific national tragedy is confirmation of LCDR Lewis' exceptional personal and professional skills. The ICSW community is immensely proud of JJ and has expressed our support and solidarity. In return, JJ says, "I appreciate the support from ICSW with this challenging endeavor. I’m proud to represent the US Public Health Service and ICSW in this way."
