EPICC: Education, Passions, Insight, Career, Community
EPICC is the only national community for clinical social work graduate students! We try to help solve the mysteries of a clinical social work career and help you navigate while you make your way through graduate school. We offer great content in our e-books, scholarship contests for field placement papers, connections with students at other schools, social media pages, access to advanced practice social workers ready to mentor you, and a pathway to the universe of clinical social work practice and licensure.
EPICC is not-for-profit and sponsored by the practitioners of the American Clinical Social Work Association (ACSWA). Join us and Be EPICC!
It is no wonder that students just want to be done with their field placements; they want their lives back. But when a student is running toward graduation like someone running from a house fire, closing with clients can too often be overlooked.
“The horse is a mirror to your soul,” said Jane Davis, whose horse, Snickers, is her partner in equine-assisted healing practice, based at a farm between Woodstock and Saugerties. “Everything you learn with a horse can be taken into your relationships.”
As clinicians, it is our responsibility to create spaces in which people can feel safe from a traumatizing world. It is important for us to allow people room to not only have refuge, but to show up as their authentic selves.
