According to the aswb.org Candidate Handbook, there are four different types of Social Work Licensing Exams (bachelors, masters, advanced generalist, and clinical). First, you need to know which type of exam you need to take. In my case, I need to take the Clinical exam.
The clinical exam covers the following categories:Human Development, Diversity, and Behavior in the Environment
- Assessment, Diagnosis, and Treatment Planning
- Psychotherapy, Clinical Interventions, and Case Management
- Professional Ethics and Values
You will likely notice that you have taken courses related to many of the sub-categories and main categories. You will also find that any internships or work experience that you have had will help you in understanding the topics covered.
