LCSW stands for Licensed Clinical Social Worker. This state license means that I have met the requirements and have been approved according to the standards set by the New Jersey State Board of Social Work Examiners. In order to renew my license every two years, I have to have at least 20 hours of continuing education every year. Therefore, I attend training and workshops throughout the year.
