Really. I am hoping that Colorado will allow for me to take the LMSW exam. Arizona is very strict with their laws on who takes what exam. I had 2 years of Supervision years ago, however did not take the state exam, because I didn't have to, worse mistake I made. In Arizona I qualified to take the MSW exam, but I wanted to take the LCSW exam. I guess my 2 years of Supervion with professionals, and working in a School District for 5 years, under another LCSW did not qualify me, because I am a Behavior Specialist. Working with BI Polar, Autism, ADHD and every diagnosis under the sun, I still did not qualify. When I asked how to qualify I was told to volunteer and work for an Agency under an LMSW. With all the extra time, sure. Just to let you know that having a license is important to me, but an exam does not in anyway tell anyone how bright a person is. I have help change others, and I have integrity, but it does not have anything to do with a license. There are some pretty messed up therapist, who should re think their careers. If you want to get a license in Social Work California and Arizona are the most difficult States to get re-licensed in. It happens to be the two states I have lived in the past 6 years.
I hope Colorado will give me a chance.
I just want to be allowed to take an exam.
