Clinical Post-Test Required for Qualifying Sessions

Session presenters are required to provide a clinical post-test for licensed clinical social workers (LICSW) in the form of a multiple question quiz at the end of your PowerPoint presentation if your presentation touches on one of these six clinical knowledge areas:

  1. Differential diagnosis and biopsychosocial assessment, including normative development and psychopathology across the lifespan;
  2. Assessment-based clinical treatment planning with measurable goals;
  3. Clinical intervention methods informed by research and current standards of practice;
  4. Evaluation methodologies;
  5. Social work values and ethics, including cultural context, diversity, and social policy; or
  6. Culturally specific clinical assessment and intervention.

We recommend one question per slide with the answers shown in one slide at the end of the PowerPoint slides for reference.
