What does it mean to be a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW)?
A Licensed Clinical Social Worker is an individual who possesses a Master of Social Work degree from an Council of Social Work Education (CSWE) accredited institution. Upon graduation, they passed the 150 question Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) Licensed Social Worker exam. They then had at least 2,000 hours of client contact under the supervision of a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Finally, they have passed an additional 150 question ASWB Licensed Clinical Social Worker exam. It takes a minimum of two years to complete the processes to become an LCSW. In addition to passing two exams, all licensed social workers in the state of Indiana are required to attend 20 hours of continuing education per year.
Helping Clients Cope with Trauma
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an evidenced based psychotherapy for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In addition, successful outcomes are well-documented in the treatment of other psychiatric disorders, mental health problems and somatic symptoms. The treatment results in the alleviation of presenting symptoms, a decrease or elimination of distress, improved self-esteem, relief from bodily disturbances and resolution of present and future anticipated triggers. (Adapted from EMDRIA-EMDR International Association)
“EMDR was a life giving form of therapy for me. I found it to restore me by giving me freedom from former trauma in my life, which was controlling my everyday thoughts and lifestyle.”

Our brokenness reveals something about who we are. Our sufferings and pains are not simply bothersome interruptions of our lives; rather, they touch us in our uniqueness and our most intimate individuality. The way I am broken tells you something unique about me. The way you are broken tells me something unique about you. That is the reason for my feeling very privileged when you freely share some of your deep pain with me, and that is why it is an expression of my trust in you when I disclose to you something of my vulnerable side. Our brokenness is always lived and experienced as highly personal, intimate and unique. I am deeply convinced that each human being suffers in a way no other human being suffers.... In fact, I am more grateful for a person who can acknowledge that I am very alone in my pain than for someone who tries to tell me that there are many others who have a similar or a worse pain. -Henri J.
