About Us Texas Society for Clinical Social Work

Our Mission

The Texas Society for Clinical Social Work was founded thirty years ago to address the "in the trenches" needs and concerns of social workers in clinical practice in agencies, hospitals, and/or private practice. The Texas Society for Clinical Social Work strives to promote excellence in clinical social work practice, and maintain the identity of clinical social work as a distinct profession within the mental health field. The practice of clinical social work is rooted in the basic values of the social work profession that includes a commitment to the dignity, well-being, and self-determination of the individual.
