Resources for GSSW Alumni

At the Graduate School of Social Work (GSSW), we’re a family. That doesn’t change when you graduate. Even if you live far from campus, there are lots of ways to stay connected — continuing education and special events live-streamed from campus, following us on social media, recruiting students and more.

2023 Colorado Licensed Clinical Social Worker Preparation

GSSW's Licensure Preparation Study Sessions will help you prepare for the social work licensing exam. Taught by a GSSW alumnus, the course includes thinking skills, test-taking strategies, how to approach the exam questions, and reviews each of the four primary knowledge/content areas:

  • Human development, diversity and behavior in the environment
  • Assessment, diagnosis and treatment planning
  • Psychotherapy, clinical interventions and case management
  • Professional ethics and values

After the content review for each section, the class discusses the correct answer and rationale for practice questions. This format will allow you to identify your strengths and weaknesses. You’ll also have an opportunity to practice with questions from the Association of Social Work Boards group practice exam.

2023 Schedule & Registration:
