Licensure Required by May 1st.

As of May 1, 2015 all clinical social work practice in CT will require either the LMSW or LCSW. The only exceptions are social work internships as part of a social work degree program, practice under a school social worker certification, practice in a nursing home and practicing under another professional license. If you are a MSW working toward the LCSW please note that also as of May 1, 2015 your hours of experience will only count if completed as a LMSW (hours prior to May 1st count with or without the LMSW). Non-clinical social work continues to not require a license. The practice of clinical social work without a license after May 1, 2015 means you are not in compliance with state statute, which creates legal, regulatory and liability issues.
