What is Clinical Social Work?

"Clinical Social Work is a specialized practice of the profession, which is exercised through a due postgraduate training process and clinically supervised. The approaches and methodologies include the integration of Social Work methods with a therapeutic purpose, from a broad framework  theoretical and epistemological. The main functions and services of clinical social workers  are oriented to carry out comprehensive evaluations, as well as  to systematize, supervise, investigate and advise clinically. One of the main ways to  professional practice is the application of different therapeutic practices, including its individual, family, group and collective modalities. Other clinical practices within the TSC are counseling, liberating social pedagogy in mental health, crisis intervention, advocacy, mediation, home visits for therapeutic purposes, and community development, among others".
