Back by Popular Demand!

9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

via Zoom

1.5 CECs

From MSW to LMSW to LCSW…it can get a bit confusing. This workshop will cover all of the aspects of social work licensure in Connecticut. Both the LMSW and the LCSW licenses will be covered. Topics will include Scope of Practice, eligibility, types of supervision, attaining hours in and out of state, the application process, required documentation, fees, exam preparation and the examination, when the license is mandatory vs. optional, exceptions, continuing education requirements, and reinstatement of a lapsed license. Ample time will be reserved for questions. Other state statutes governing social work practice will be briefly covered if time permits.


Stephen A. Wanczyk-Karp, LMSW, Executive Director of the Connecticut Chapter of NASW, will present the workshop. He has over 30 years of experience in the legislative and political arena, including overseeing the passage of social work licensure, confidentiality, and third-party payment for social workers. He has extensive experience in getting social work bills passed, and equal experience in derailing bills that would threaten social work practice in Connecticut. Recognized amongst his peers for his skills in political social work, he is the architect of the successful campaign to have the State of Connecticut give preference in hiring to BSWs and MSWs for the position of social worker. Steve was given the NASW Gilman-Wells Award for exceptional practice in government relations upon the passage of this legislation. Employed with NASW for over 34 years, 31 of them have been as the NASW/CT Executive Director.


This workshop is FREE to NASW Members.

Cost is $35 to Non Members.
