Now that you have earned your masters, what are your next steps? You have many paths and options available.
WSSCSW is offering fall and spring mentorship groups to support new clinical mental health providers and current students in a clinical mental health training program in developing their professional identities and skills as they navigate life post-graduation. These groups will give new professionals a forum facilitated by a seasoned clinical social worker to explore what it means to hold a social justice lens when entering this profession after graduate school.
During the mentorship group, mentees will be provided with resources, training, networking opportunities, healing practices, critical discussions, and more in order to grow and develop the tools necessary to thrive in this profession. The groups are open to those who have earned their masters within the last 5 years and current students enrolled in a mental health training program. This space is intended for learning and growth and is not a therapy or supervision group.
