What is Clinical Social Work?

Clinical Social Work focuses on assessing, treating, and preventing mental, emotional, and behavioural issues. Through psychotherapy and counselling, Clinical Social Workers help individuals, families, and groups face a wide range of challenges.

How Clinical Social Work Can Help

Clinical Social Work offers a holistic approach to addressing psychological, emotional, and social challenges. Using a range of techniques specific to the individual’s needs, registered social workers (RSW) can help navigate anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship issues. RSWs can also provide resource referrals and self-exploration opportunities to foster personal growth and resilience. With the support and expertise of RSWs, patients can learn healthier behaviours, enhance their overall well-being, and achieve an improved quality of life.
