Are you in search of a licensing exam prep course?

Not sure what in-person course will suit your needs? Look no further!

This year we are offering a two-day prep course at our NASW-CA Annual Conference taking place October 20-21, 2017 in San Mateo at the Marriott Hotel.

Both days focus on the most commonly misunderstood concepts and practice principles to improve exam performance. They also include a practice with sample multiple choice questions to take inventory of your personal strengths and weaknesses as a basis for planning a course of post-workshop study.

Part A: Day 1 reviews laws and ethical standards commonly addressed on the law and ethics exam, as well as those ethical issues that also appear on the Clinical Exam.

Part B: Day 2 reviews the various topics addressed on the ASWB Exam Content Outline, including biopsychosocial assessment, diagnosis, treatment planning and therapeutic interventions.

The presenter, Stan Taubman, PhD, LCSW, has taught clinical workshops since 1974. Recent workshops have focused on law and ethics, diagnosis, treatment planning, and clinical documentation. Dr. Taubman is the former director of the Medi-Cal Behavoral Health Plan for Alameda County, and director of Management Services for the Alameda County Behavioral Health Care Service. He has been in clinical practice since 1968 in mental health, medical, child welfare and private practice settings, and has served on the faculties of the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute, University of Southern California, San Diego State University, and currently the University of California, Berkeley.
