Clinical Social Work
Clinical social work is a mental healthcare profession based on theories and methods of prevention and treatment in providing mental-health/healthcare services, with special focus on behavioral and bio-psychosocial problems and disorders. Clinical social work’s unique attributes include use of the person-in-environment perspective, respect for the primacy of client rights and strong therapeutic alliance between client and practitioner.
Clinical social work is notable for the versatility of its practitioners and the variety of their roles, including psychosocial assessment and diagnosis, treatment planning, intervention and therapy, evaluation of outcomes and case management. Because of the nature of their role, clinical social workers may meet with close persons in their client’s life or accompany the person to settings in the community.
