The Therapist Development Center announced today that they have helped more than 500 social workers pass their social work licensing exams with their on-line study systems for the LCSW exam and the LMSW exam. Many social workers struggle to get their license. In fact, each year approximately six thousand social workers fail their licensing exam. In a time of economic and social service cutbacks, failing to obtain a license can cost social workers their jobs.
Created by social workers who have passed the social work licensing exam the Therapist Development Center is working to help more social workers pass. In addition to on-line lectures, quizzes and practice tests, the Therapist Development Center offers customers live coaching by social workers who scored in the 90% on the national exam. Recently licensed social worker, Gisela Bates, shared her good news this week, “I finally passed the LCSW exam using your program after attempting four previous times using other companies. With your program I finally figured out what the test was asking. Thank you so much for putting these materials together. I appreciated the support from my coach. It is obvious that you guys really care. Also, it was great to hear from other social workers how to pass this exam.”
Founder Amanda Rowan, LCSW, shared her reason for starting the Therapist Development Center. “When I was preparing to take the licensing exam I purchased a couple different programs and felt completely overwhelmed by the amount of material they told me I had to know. When I actually took the real LCSW exam, very little of what I studied was on the test. I started to research the various social work test preparation companies and found that most of them were created by people who had not actually taken the exam. I decided to create a company where social workers could help other social workers pass.” So far it has worked. The Therapist Development Center has a goal of helping 1000 social workers pass their licensing exams in 2013.
