General information

Thus, a large part of our teaching team has been directly or indirectly involved with the development of Clinical Social Work in Chile and also internationally, promoting a contemporary therapeutic practice that is consistent with our Latin American reality, and specifically with the realities nationals. Given this, the Chilean Institute of Clinical Social Work as a broad social project, during all this time has been dedicated to participating through a series of meetings, courses, seminars, conferences, webinars, talks, etc; either with various public or private agencies, NGOs, trade union organizations and associations, higher education institutions and even with public health, mental health and psychosocial programs in force in the country, as well as abroad. It has been an intense journey, traveling through different places and countries, weaving professional ties, which has been exciting to be able to work in collaboration with many people, colleagues, forging friendships, sharing knowledge and commitments around what matters to us at Work. Clinical Social, as well as in the development of Latin America and in life.


Therefore, and due to all these efforts, this year 2021 we will carry out the 2nd Version of the International Diploma in Clinical Social Work: For a Contemporary Therapeutic Practice with People, Families and Groups . This time we will share a strengthened, high-quality systematic training program with unpublished bibliographic materials, coupled with the participation of prominent international colleagues from various countries who are clinical social workers. The purpose is to enrich our program with the integration between theory, research, methodology, international association and clinical supervision. We hope to be able to cultivate a professional community of Clinical Social Work with the intention of continuing to promote various therapeutic practices that are anti-oppressive, ethically collaborative, depathologizing, critical, transparent, that defend cultural dignity, being sensitive to gender and political aspects. wide. Our further intention is to be able to generate knowledge that is translated into professional practices that are applicable and translated to different people, families and groups, in different areas of professional performance, whether in public or private contexts, which can be related to mental health , community work, free exercise of the profession, practice in educational systems and / or in psychosocial programs or other new clinical settings or therapeutic contexts under development and / or construction.


Program Justification

The new challenges of the professional practice of Social Work in direct care and in the face of the growing mental health problems linked to the current type of society, and added to the demands of the National Mental Health Plan (2017-2025) regarding the promotion and strengthening Community Mental Health in social workers and other professions. During the last time, contemporary Clinical Social Work has been reflecting on the need to make efforts to socialize and update content and methodologies that can do justice to the new problems and challenges that our society experiences with respect to mental health. According to a global health reality, the World Health Organization (2018) announces the urgency of developing comprehensive care in the field of mental health, strengthening and promoting practices that provide responses across different human systems. This is mainly due to the fact that depression will become the second world disease that will cause disability in people, being number one in developing countries. All this is aggravated by some recent studies that report that today we enjoy the worst mental health in the region, this being catastrophic in the child and adolescent population. (Jiménez & Radiszcz, 2012; Salinas, 2019; Herrera, 2019)


Under this panorama, Clinical Social Work constitutes a postgraduate specialty of the profession, being an important professional practice in mental health, which is widely developed in the United States, Canada, Germany, Puerto Rico, Australia, etc. (Northen, 1995; Dorfman, 1986, 1996; Paquin, 2009; National Association of Social Workers, 2005; Canadian National Association of Social Workers, 2008; Rosario and Sánchez, 2014; Nieves-Rolón, IE, Rivera Rodríguez, E., Ortiz-Candelaria, VC, & Pérez-Martínez, K. L, 2019; Australian Association of Social Workers, 2019). However, these countries have regulations, high-level postgraduate training, maintaining the use of licenses and / or clinical records that clarify a vast disciplinary journey, this reality being the one that differs abruptly in several Latin American countries. It is for this reason, and given the specific training gap, added to the language gaps (English proficiency) and the limited access to clinical supervision, that we as an Institute have decided to offer for the second time in Latin America, a qualified program in Clinical Social Work, with a contemporary orientation, which seeks to do justice to our peoples, societies and cultures.


Therefore, our purpose in this course is to contribute to updating knowledge and technical-operational tools that will allow strengthening and / or carrying out Clinical Social Work practices in mental health and in psychosocial contexts, or in other therapeutic / clinical contexts. emerging through a specialized disciplinary perspective, integrative exercise, ethically collaborative and socially committed from a contemporary critical stance. Our entire program is traced by contemporary approaches to the clinical practice of Social Work, which are: trauma-informed practice, empowerment-centered practice, antiopressive practice, practice grounded in gender studies and feminisms, practice focused on networks and collectives; and finally, narrative practices, based on strengths and centered on cultural dignity. On the other hand, we hold conversations with relational, collaborative, solution-focused, dialogic or other perspectives that can provide answers to the formative and contextual needs of our clinical practices in Chile or for other Latin American countries or interested parties.

From these transversal approaches and in dialogue with other perspectives, it is possible to carry out a Clinical Social Work that maintains a humanly responsible, comprehensive, collective and ethically sensitive vision of the political and gender issues that are present in the problems of structural violence and violence. mental health in our society. We mainly want to take the principle of Social Justice of the profession to promote an embodied, anti-oppressive clinical practice, located in contexts, seeking the dignity of local cultures and with the intention of depathologizing the subjective suffering of individuals, families and groups.
