If you are in Washington, DC for the NASW Conference, be sure to check out the session with Combined Destinies co-Author, Caroline Haskell, LCSW. I have worked with Caroline to help promote her book, Combined Destinies: Whites Sharing Grief About Racism. She gives a compelling talk about themes in the book. #socialwork #naswconference #2014NASW

When I pass a test that everyone else fails

image

This was me after my research methods midterm one semester. Everyone was angry at the instructor for making the test so hard, but I put in a couple of hours worth of studying and was able to get a ridiculously high score. Moral of the story #1: the harder you work the easier things will be. Moral of the story #2: don’t half-ass any part of your education or professional obligations.

SIGNAL BOOST: I’M FORMING A CALIFORNIA LCSW GROUP

I’m looking for a study buddy or to form a group (no more than six of us) for studying for the California LCSW exam. I would do this online via Google Hangouts, Skype, and exchanging information via Evernote*.

I expect to be taking the first exam on April 2015 (based on when I anticipate turning in my hours and the current BBS turnaround time to validate those hours).

I anticipate that I would pass on the group to whoever still needs this around that time (unless I don’t pass the exams on the first try).

Requirements:

  • Live in California. We are special, thus, there are law and ethics questions that pertain to our beloved and over-priced state. Not to mention, it helps being in the same timezone.
  • Hardware: You have a laptop, smartphone, or tablet with a microphone, preferably a front-facing video camera. Also preferable: you have a stable internet connection.
  • *Tech capable: Have a working knowledge of technology (e.g. how to use Gmail, Google Docs, a web browser, Google Hangouts or Skype). I will be using Evernote to collaborate with the group.
  • Good Attitude and Hard Work. I want to pass the exam the first time around and I do not want to waste your time if you have similar goals. I hope to attract social workers that want to learn, complete “homework”, and share as much as s/he gains. I want this to be friendly and casual.
