The Georgia Society for Clinical Social Work’s Mentorship Program matches experienced clinicians with those newer to the field. The purpose is to support members in their professional development and career planning in clinical social work. Program activities may include developing career strategies, discussing practice standards, identifying continuing education needs, clarifying ethical and legal dilemmas, expanding clinical skills, enhancing professional adaptability and facilitating collegial networking.
How Mentorship is Different
Mentorship is clearly differentiated from clinical supervision and psychotherapy and -in no case– is meant as a substitute for either of these processes. This is an educational program only.
While the committee is no longer offering a formal mentor program, we have assembled a list of informal mentors for mentorship group attendees seeking career information in various areas of interest. We will gladly discuss and share this information during mentorship groups.
Monthly Mentorship Support Meetings
The GSCSW Mentorship Program also offers a free monthly group. This informal group offers students and new practitioners an opportunity to network, receive support from each other and work on career development with seasoned facilitators. The group meets on the first Thursday of the month (September – May) in Midtown. Please review event calendar for any changes to group meeting dates and times.
