Social work licensure is vital because it protects clients by ensuring social workers
possess the proper education and training to provide ethical and competent services. Each state
has its own regulatory board that grants social workers their licenses and the criteria vary by
location. In Mississippi, our board oversees three types of social work licenses: Licensed Social
Worker (LSW), Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW), and Licensed Clinical Social Worker
(LCSW). To practice as a Licensed Master Social Worker, you must hold a board approved
master’s degree in social work, pass your ASWB Master’s Exam, and complete a successful
background check (Association of Social Work Boards., 2016).
The first thing I plan to do to prepare for the social work license examination is to set a
date and pay the fee to reserve my seat. This will provide a timeframe for preparation, so I can
ensure I am equipped when the time comes. The second thing is attending the preparation class
at the local university here in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. This comprehensive workshop covers key
exam content areas that students will need to know and can study at home. The last thing strategy
is to purchase the ASWB 2021 book to practice for thirty minutes each day. The goal is to start
this December, so I can pace myself and not feel rushed or stressed.
In closing, social workers provide essential services to vulnerable and oppressed
populations. So, at critical times, it requires us to elevate services to clients above our self-
interest. When workers possess license, it assures protection of the clients we serve and offers
them legal recourse if they are harmed. This accountability ensures that workers are doing what’s
required and mandated as professionals.
