Lots of Social Work Exam Passing!

jill passed the social work licensing examThe SWTP inbox has recently been stuffed with great news from newly licensed social workers who used SWTP to prepare for the exam. Here are a few:

"I just want to thank you for your site.  I just passed my exam and I credit studying using your site for putting me over the top.  I would recommend it to anyone preparing for the LCSW exam.  I don't have anyone to recommend it to today but be assured I will speak highly of your site to anyone I come across who is preparing." - Rhonda

"Thank you Social Work Test Prep!  I passed the exam thanks to your useful and accurate program.  Money well spent!" - Missy

"I sat for the ASWB clinical exam two days ago and passed. The practice tests that I took through your website were excellent representations of what was covered on the exam (although I was relieved to see there was nothing on the exam about applying "paradoxical treatment") and I will certainly recommend socialworktestprep to my colleagues. Thank you very much!" - Michael

"I passed! I really think the extra practice questions and the booster I got from Social Work Test Prep really helped! I like that they were accessible and that there were a few different ways to review and take the practice tests." - Noelle

Jill just wrote "passed :)" and sent the picture.

Congratulations, all!

Now, it's  your turn. Go pass that exam! Get ready with SWTP practice tests. We've got five complete, 170-question exams plus two booster tests, one all DSM, one all ethics. Get practice, get licensed!

Happy studying and good luck with the exam!

SWTP Election-Action Coupon Offer

vote by mailCould the November 3rd election be any more important? It's hard to imagine what it would take to raise the stakes any higher. Seems like a good time to review this call to action from the NASW Code of Ethics:

6.04 Social and Political Action

(a) Social workers should engage in social and political action that seeks to ensure that all people have equal access to the resources, employment, services, and opportunities they require to meet their basic human needs and to develop fully. Social workers should be aware of the impact of the political arena on practice and should advocate for changes in policy and legislation to improve social conditions in order to meet basic human needs and promote social justice.

(b) Social workers should act to expand choice and opportunity for all people, with special regard for vulnerable, disadvantaged, oppressed, and exploited people and groups.

(c) Social workers should promote conditions that encourage respect for cultural and social diversity within the United States and globally. Social workers should promote policies and practices that demonstrate respect for difference, support the expansion of cultural knowledge and resources, advocate for programs and institutions that demonstrate cultural competence, and promote policies that safeguard the rights of and confirm equity and social justice for all people.

(d) Social workers should act to prevent and eliminate domination of, exploitation of, and discrimination against any person, group, or class on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, marital status, political belief, religion, immigration status, or mental or physical ability.

Here at SWTP, we're making every effort to act on what section 6.04 is suggesting. While some effective election action is off the table during the pandemic, there's still lots to do: phonebanking, textbanking, fundraising, postcard and letter writing. What you do (and for whom you do it) is a personal choice. But we're here to nudge you to ladder up in 2020 to increased dedication to this vital part of social work practice.

Send us a picture, or some other evidence, that shows you've stepped up your election action and we'll send you a coupon worth 50% off SWTP exams. There's no bigger coupon for SWTP exams out there.

Not sure where to start or what to do? Write us, we'll try to help you out. Or just pick a candidate, go to their website, and click VOLUNTEER. With the election fast approaching, volunteer programs are up and running and always looking for additional help.

You may find that increasing your political engagement helps relieve stress, even as you're dedicating more time to doing stuff. Social workers are busy people. Busy people get stuff done.

Thanks in advance for everything you're about to do!

Ethical Online Social Work

telehealthAmong the giant changes the pandemic has wrought, for many social workers, following CDC guidelines means no longer working face to face with clients. Along with all that's lost when not seeing someone in person, the non-verbal communication, the shared-in-room experience, what's also missing is perhaps a certainty about how to practice ethically. Online, virtual social work isn't just a one-for-one swap with face-to-face social work. There are new, vexing issues to tackle, most involving security, privacy, and confidentiality.

Here's a page of telehealth help from the NASW. And another from the CA NASW. And here's an Eye on Ethics article on the subject: Virtuous Virtual Social Work, which adds questions about boundaries and dual relationships to the virtual social work concerns pile.

Is it possible to practice telehealth ethically? Of course it is? It just takes a little extra care and learning up top.

Now, imagine what ASWB exam writers might come up with having read the above articles (which is just the sort of thing they might do as they're digging around for more question material). How would you write a question to assess a beginning social worker's competence and ethicality in the realm of telehealth? Something about informed consent? Something about HIPAA? Something about a client refusing telehealth sessions or insisting upon an insecure platform?

That's one way to tackle tricky subject on the licensing exam, as you're preparing and as you're taking the exam. Put yourself in the test-question writer's shoes. What might a question about any given topic look like? And, once you're sitting down for the real thing, ask yourself, "What is this question getting at? Why is it on the exam?"

The answer to that question may direct you to the correct answer to the question in front of you.

Can't come up with anything? Just like virtual meetings with clients, virtual study groups can be a big help. Challenge each other to come up with new questions. And, if you're really proud of what you come up with, send it in. Maybe we'll post it here.

Good luck with your ethical telehealth practice and good luck with the exam!
