To Be or Not To Be: LCSWs Returning to Office Psychotherapy

Content level: Intermediate

This 2 -credit course was developed for clinical social work professionals. The course will help LCSWs determine when and how to safely return to our office practices, as many states edge closer to ‘opening up’ in-person contacts. This webinar will help participants make this complicated decision in these perilous times.  Here is your chance to ask all the questions you have about making this important choice.
