Support Clinical Supervision for all Medical Social Workers
Clinical supervision provides medical social workers an opportunity for professional development and day-to-day support in the mentally demanding work we do. In our current organization (stats based on a survey conducted earlier this year):
Whites made up 37.6% of total respondents, but represented 48.9% of those who are licensed (LCSWs). 20.0% are Asian, and 14.4% are Black.
Even though Hispanics represented 21.7% of survey respondents, they represented only 13.3% of those who are LCSWs and 41.3% of those wanting clinical supervision but are not receiving any at this time.
Even though LCSW Asians, Blacks, and Hispanics were more likely to become licensed while working at our current organization, Whites were respectively 1.58, 1.90, and 2.37 times more likely to become licensed compared to their counterparts.
By signing this petition, we support having clinical supervision be made available to all medical social workers and addressing this racial disparity in attaining clinical supervision.
