It is often through the sharing of clinical experiences and encounters with clients that learning can take place. However, it is critical that clients be protected through this sharing and that their privacy and rights be protected at all times. To that end, the Clinical Social Work Journal has adopted a policy that authors must follow in order to ensure that the material they include in any case presentation protects the client. Please read the full policy here and ensure that content in your submission abides by these guidelines before submitting.
The Clinical Social Work Journal (CSWJ) is pleased to announce a call for papers for a special issue entitled “Global Insights into Clinical Social Work with Sexual and Gender Diverse/Expansive People.” We seek manuscripts providing clinical social workers with a deeper understanding of practice with LGBTQ+ people across the globe. We seek papers from various cultures/countries that explore how gender-sensitive clinical interventions are offered in various global locations.
Such papers could focus on challenges clinical social workers experience in providing such services in their communities given the context of those communities, as well as affirming practices with this population. We also seek papers that explore the unique clinical issues that clinical social workers see in those communities given the local attitudes and legal rights in those contexts.
