COVID-19 Resources

The American Board of Clinical Social Work (ABCSW) prides itself on being a close organization of clinical social workers who support each other through everything, especially during a time like this. The Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has impacted us in every aspect of our lives – professionally, personally, financially and mentally. We empathize with you as all of us go through this together.

In addition, part of staying healthy during this time is maintaining a physical distance, which is not the same as social distance. Keep a safe physical distance, but keep a close social one. Never in history have we had so many ways to keep in touch: email, text, phones, chat, Skype, Zoom, FaceTime, etc. Find a way that works for you and use it. Don’t feel you have to go it alone.
