EPICC: Education, Passions, Insight, Career, Community
At EPICC, the only national community for clinical social work grad students, you get help with many things: writing papers (great content in our clinical e-books), scholarships, connecting with students at other schools, social media, and access 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). Let us help you get the best understanding of what goes into a clinical social work career, and the best support as you move through school onto a well-marked pathway into the profession.
Social workers may work remotely through distance counseling, using videoconferencing or mobile technology to meet with clients and organize support and advocacy groups. Learn how other clinical social workers are utilizing technology by engaging in the EPICC community. https://www.epiccsocialwork.org
