Veteran BSW FAQ - When I was a registered social worker, I was trained to do a specific behavioral therapy technique with my clients. Someone told me I could not offer that therapy any more under the new licensing laws. Is that correct?
Yes, that is correct. As a licensed bachelor's social worker, psychotherapy is not part of your scope of practice. The definition of what can be performed at each level of regulation specifically identifies therapy as an activity that can only be performed at the master's level or limited master's level under the supervision of a licensed master's social worker.
