Mind Your Self is an LCSW-S Certification provider approved by the Texas State Board of Social Work Examiners. We offer a 40-hour certification course that combines 16 hours of pre-work (done in home and at your pace) with a three day seminar (24 hours) via Zoom that culminate in 40 hours of continuing education credits (including 6 hours of Ethics) and the ability to submit an application by the attendee to become a state approved LCSW-S.
Our course was developed by our founder and CEO Dr. Carla Groves, LCSW-S. With different learning styles in mind (as well as keeping you alert and interested in a three day seminar), our course is a mix of lecture, discussion, activities, video presentation, and role-play. We cover a variety of topics, including:
- The supervisory relationship
