The society was established in the early 1970's specifically to promote the needs of social workers interested in psychodynamic approaches to treatment and the acceptance of clinical social workers in the practice of psychotherapy. Now providing leadership and training opportunities in the broad spectrum of psychotherapy techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy, hypnosis and other theoretical techniques, NJSCSW is in the forefront of vital issues facing clinical social workers today.
