Price: $295.00

National LCSW Exam Study Program

Our 2021 Licensed Clinical Social Worker Exam Study System prepares social workers to pass the CLINICAL Level Exam administered by the ASWB. This LCSW Exam Study System is fully updated to reflect the content on the 2021 ASWB exam. Included in the online study system is access to:

  • An organized, step-by-step study plan that allows you to create a personalized, easy to follow schedule.  Many students waste valuable time trying to figure out what to study and often miss out on key topics OR end up over studying topics that are unlikely to show up on the exam.  Our plan keeps you focused and efficient - covering exactly what you need to know for the ASWB's Licensed Clinical Social Worker exam and nothing you don’t.
  • Online audio workshops with downloadable handouts – listen when you want and how much you want.  This means you can study on the go - in the car, on a walk, at the gym, or cleaning your house. The audio and visual study materials work for all types of learners.
  • Effective study tools for the ASWB Clinical Exam — Top 50 Topics Tested, Law & Ethics Quiz, DSM 5 Audio Lectures, and Outline, Quick Studies, and Quizzes for key terms and content that will appear on the LCSW test.
  • Clinical examples that help you learn instead of memorizing. To pass this exam you need to understand how to approach the reasoning-based questions that make up the vast majority of the LCSW exam, including being able to identify what the key clinical concept of each question is. Our study program brings content alive with real-life examples similar to the ones you will see on the LCSW exam.
  • Clear test-taking strategies you will use on exam day to figure out what they are asking and what the best answer is. Our study program for the national LCSW exam also focuses on anxiety management to keep you thinking clearly.
  • ASWB practice exams with over 750+ practice questions that include detailed audio or written rationales, & reflect the actual kinds of questions you will see on the ASWB Clinical Level Exam.  Our questions were written by social workers who passed with scores of 90% or higher on the ASWB Clinical Exam, so the questions accurately reflect what you will see on the test (unlike many other practice tests and programs you will find out there in the test prep world).
  • Experienced coaches are available via email for questions and support who will always get back to you within two business days (but are often able to get back to you even sooner!).

The LCSW licensing exam training takes roughly 57 hours of study time to complete once. We recommend studying between 2 and 12 weeks. Access to the program expires after 4 months, but it is FREE to extend or repeat the program. We are with you until you PASS the Licensed Clinical Social Work Exam! Once you sign up, you can access the program & digital resources immediately. Nothing is shipped - it is all online. Get started now to prepare yourself to PASS the ASWB Clinical Exam with confidence!

Still unsure if our LCSW Exam Prep is right for you?

Here at the Therapist Development Center, we understand that taking the ASWB Clinical Level Exam can be daunting, and choosing the right social work ASWB Clinical exam guide can be confusing. Many of you have jobs that are dependent on you passing this LCSW exam. Others have been out of graduate school for a long time and feel out of touch with the broad amount of content tested on the ASWB Clinical Exam. Finding the right LCSW licensing exam training and LCSW exam prep program can be challenging with so many options - books, workshops, apps, and other online options.

Many social workers come to us after using other LCSW study guides and failing, finding themselves feeling defeated or hopeless that they won't find the help they need. They report that with other social work ASWB Clinical exam guides, they were overwhelmed with a pile of books, that the day-long workshop only covered a small portion of the content tested, or that the online program they went through didn’t teach them how to answer the types of questions that showed up on their exams.  We totally get it. We created a robust study program for the ASWB Clinical Exam that offers multiple learning methods, so your brain can learn both the content you need to pass and the strategy needed to break down the unique types of questions that show up on this exam. The good news is, once the social workers who previously failed started studying with us, they quickly found themselves with a renewed sense of confidence and were able to successfully PASS their ASWB Clinical Level Exams.

Course Reviews

I am grateful that I found this program. I honestly had purchased another company but was overwhelmed by the amount of information (like literally got all the DSM on flashcards) and textbooks. I am very audio and TDC gave me all I needed to prepare for this big test. TDC helped me keep my sanity by giving me structure and the ability to email coaches for any questions. I got a phone call from Bethany the first time I didn't pass and it comforting to hear her and empowering me not to give up. Getting questions answered by Heidy so quickly helped me in not losing my hope with passing. Lastly, I want to thank Amanda Rowen for this program. I will definitely recommend this program and this program only to colleagues.

This course is freaking awesome! I have had so much test anxiety for quite some time and have a difficult time focusing in on material when there is too much of it, so I am so thankful for the concise and easy to understand information and study materials that TDC provides. I felt extremely prepared for the test and got a 90% which was much higher then I thought I would get!!

Thank you so much TDC for all your help- I couldn't have done it without you!! I used this program for the Law and Ethics and Clinical exams and passed on the first try for both. I highly recommend TDC to anyone studying for either exam. This program is amazing!!

First; thank you for this course, It prepared me to pass on my second attempt. I am embraced to share how many other courses I viewed or purchased. By the time I was introduced to yours I had second thoughts but I went for it because I knew I needed to study differently in order to pass. Your curriculum was simple, direct, and user friendly. I worked through the program to the half mocks and returned to the beginning to replay the lectures. What a difference. I started listening, paying attention to factors that I hadn't previously. Replaying the Ethics was a big piece after completing a 1/2 mock. Your final mock was a kicker! I think I scored a 79 but have to look. It fully prepared me to take the exam. I scored a 102 but needed a 99. Thank you for the journey.

I would definately refer to your program. Everything you stated in the lectures was true. Stick to the plan and you will PASS!!!

Overall, a wonderful course!! I had tried every other program offered and TDC was the only one that really taught me HOW to answer the questions. I am so grateful for this program and the support from my coach, Heidi. I have even recommended this program to my other supervisee friends who are striving to pass the exam as well. Thank you again for your dedication and passion to help social workers.

I am so pleased with TDC! I took studying seriously and really engaged in learning the material but also applying the principals Amanda teaches in regards to eliminating choices. I passed the first time around. Not only did I pass but I passed by a good margin! Thank you so much TDC!!

Great Program tells you exactly what you need to know in a clear way

I’m so thankful I passed on the first try..

I knew I wanted to do the coursework, pass the test, end of story. TDC provided clear, concise information that helped me achieve my goal. Thank-you!

Thank you so much to Therapist Development Center! I passed on my first try. The way that the lectures, study materials, handouts, etc. were designed and presented made all the difference. I learned more from this program than I did in graduate school. This program made learning this material and studying for the exam fun and exciting. The tips and strategies is really what made this program stand out to me the most - it teaches you HOW to take the exam, not just the content. I would definitely recommend reviewing the material at least 2x and taking all of the mock exams provided to make sure you are fully prepared. A special thank you shout out to Heidi for being patient with the many questions I asked her!

Studying for the LCSW was great because of how TDC set up there program. Although I probably made a new study calendar ever two weeks lol. I went through the program 4 times before I tested. I did not study the day before the test but I woke up early the day of and went over one of the final mocks rationales, most of the quick studies( did not go over the ones I was confident about), DSM recording and the theory recording at fast speed. I felt this helped me a lot. Driving to the test was very emotional but I told myself to get my head in the game and I got this. I can truly say I had no idea I passed until it showed on the screen and I was still in denial lol : ). Thanks TDC. Amanda your voice was in my head through out the test and Heidi thanks for clarifying questions when I asked and the other Facebooker's asked (It was very helpful).

TDC came highly recommended from my colleagues and I now know why! The study system organizes the large amount of information into manageable parts and even gives you a schedule to follow. It wasn't just information to memorize, it teaches you a way to think and attack the different types of questions that are the exam. This is your one stop shop for ASWB exam prep! I wasn't just ready for the test, I was confident walking into the test center and excited show off what I had learned. Thank you TDC, I couldn't have done it without you!

Thank you!

I love TDC program! Going into my exam, I felt very confident in the material. Prior to using TDC, I would pull random study material together and pray that I pass the exam. After failing 3x's I felt discouraged and frustrated feeling like I would never pass. Heidi and the members on the facebook group were so helpful and encouraging which kept me encouraged. Thank you so much for this program and Yes, I did "take" Amanda into the exam with me.

The Therapist Development Program's top 50 topics were spot on! I feel that listening to the audio portions of the program over and over again were vital to my passing the exam on my first try. Most of the questions on the exam require critical thinking. The program captured all of the topics in the exam and through repetition, taught me how to break the stem down in order to realize exactly what answer applied. I am so grateful to Amanda and her team. You guys rock!!

I passed the first time using the therapist development center. I appreciate the help in understanding the test and study materials. I passed with flying colors!!! I was supposed to earn a 103 score and I scored a 116. Rate this course as a 5!

With the help of TDC I passed my LCSW exam on my first attempt! TDC came highly recommended by a couple coworkers who used TDC program and also passed on their first attempts. Thank you to TDC for having such a detailed and organized program to tackle all the key materials/subjects covered by this exam that I think is otherwise overwhelming to study with this guidance. Recommending TDC to all my social work friends who are working on their LCSW.

The study guide accurately prepared me for the test!

TDC did a wonderful job with preparing me for reasoning based questions. Also, the helpful tips during the audios were great! I felt prepared and ready!
