Asian American Federation to Fund LMSW Prep Workshops for Asian American Social Workers

Through the Asian American Federation, funding is available to assist Asian American social workers to obtain their LMSW licenses.  

To be started in mid-February 2010, the Federation will fund a partnership between Hunter College School of Social Work (HCSSW) and Hamilton-Madison House to offer LMSW prep workshops for Asian social workers.
A total of 12 two-hour sessions will be taught by Dr. Irene Chung, Associate Professor and Chair of Clinical Practice with Individuals and Families at HCSSW to review LMSW content materials and sample exam questions in workbooks.  The emphases of the workshops will be: 1) to help those who are non-native English speakers acquire an adequate command of vocabulary to take the exam; 2) to provide a theoretical lens that is more congruent with a nationwide examination in interpretation of case vignettes and practice concepts.
The 12-week LMSW prep workshops will be FREE to participants.  Workshop days and times will be determined at a later date. Location of the workshops will be at both Hunter College School of Social Work, 129 E. 79th St., and Hamilton-Madison House 253 South Street site.
In addition, participants will be offered:

The workshops will be open to only Asian social workers with MSW degrees. Please note that the workshops can only accommodate a total of 12 participants and will be on a first come, first serve basis. Early registration is strongly encouraged.

Please distribute this opportunity among your staff and contact Joy Luangphaxay at (212) 720-4524 or for registration or more information.
