LCSW stands for Licensed Clinical Social Worker. In Montana, in order to become an LCSW a person must first attend graduate school and receive a master’s degree in social work. The LCSW candidate must then accrue 3,000 post-graduate clinical hours working with individuals and, finally pass a licensure exam.
An LCSW receives training and education to look at more than just the issue at hand. An LCSW will work to find the root cause, outside influences and other factors that may be affecting a person’s well-being. Often there is more to an issue than may first appear. An LCSW is trained to work toward solutions bydrawing on a person’s strengths.
