We are currently in direct collaboration with the Spanish Institute of Clinical Social Work  and the Center for New Opportunities for Change in Puerto Rico , in addition to other international contacts.  This has made it possible to strengthen our programs with international teachers, while on the other hand, we have an advanced professional team in postgraduate training and significant clinical experience, contributing to the situated development of  a qualified, ethically committed clinical practice  and socially responsible. Our advanced training programs  They are aimed mainly at social workers, but we also have quotas for other professions. Our research interests are linked  to critical praxis, to the development and continuity of  the disciplinary history of Clinical Social Work, both in Chile and in other countries; At the same time, we seek to consolidate work with individuals, families and groups from contemporary perspectives, and mainly with those populations that experience situations of oppression, vulnerability, precariousness and discrimination. Our clinical perspective is broad, integrative and multiparadigmatic, since we are interested in maintaining a practice that responds to the current world, to public and private settings, and that is committed to Social Justice.

General considerations

In our country, the National Accreditation Commission (CNA) only accredits training that grants  academic degree (Bachelor, Master and Doctorate). As a consequence of this, it is not possible  accredit diplomas, postgraduates or courses. Under the current legislation of the country, there is no regulation of clinical practice (there is no clinical social worker title or license), as in the United States where clinical licenses are issued that allow the regulation of therapeutic practice to different professions. Today, this is an incipient field, but one that from an ethical point of view requires the qualified development of clinical practice, which is  destined  to guarantee the essential knowledge for the practice of Clinical Social Work and that it does justice to the care of individuals, families and groups.
