Now that you have earned your MSW, what is your next step? Social Workers have many paths and options available.
WSSCSW is offering a mentorship group to support new social workers in developing their professional identities as they navigate life as a MSW. This group will give new professionals a forum facilitated by a seasoned social worker to explore what it means to enter this profession after graduate school. This is not a therapy or supervision group.
The group is open to those who have earned their MSW within the last 5 years.
About the Facilitator
Regina A. BlackWolf, LICSW
Regina has been in private practice since 2008. Previously she worked as a program manager, clinical director/supervisor, lead counselor, clinical therapist, case manager, and counselor in both inpatient and outpatient psychological facilities dating back to 2004. She received her MSW in 2006 from UW, LICSW in 2009, CDP in 2006, MAC in 2015, completed Advanced Clinical Supervisor Training in 2010, EMDR training in 2015, and was certified as a Master Scuba Diver in 2016. She has been doing clinical licensure supervision since 2012 and currently sees 6 supervisees. Regina's clinical methods are client-centered, strength perspective, and include CBT, DBT, MI, EMDR, Gestalt, and others.
Regina sees her role as a mentor as helping new professionals to find and refine their professional identity. Social Workers learn techniques and ethical standards but learning to make these our own requires time, practice, and reflection. As a more experience social worker, the mentor's role is to reflect back the new professionals experiences and facilitate a group atmosphere where new professionals help each other to grow as social workers. Regina believes in group process and that her role is to facilitate discussion more than to teach.
