Esteemed Certificants and Members,

The Board of Directors is pleased to announce our new name and logo, the American Board of Clinical Social Work (ABCSW). We feel this name and logo best reflects our mission and purpose as the premiere provider of board certification in clinical social work as we continue to move our organization forward.

This change unifies all our previous components into one entity. The American Board of Examiners in Clinical Social Work (ABE/ABECSW), American Clinical Social Work Association (ACSWA), Center for Clinical Social Work (CCSW), and EPICC will no longer exist independently, but they now fall under the auspices of the American Board of Clinical Social Work (ABCSW).

The name focuses on what we believe is our primary mission, the Board Certified Diplomat (BCD), and the core constituency we serve, the clinical social worker. The logo design represents our commitment to knowledge, competency, and empowerment for our profession.

With this organizational change, no action is required on your part. You will continue to receive the highest level of certification and customer service support without disruption. In the next couple of months, you will receive additional correspondence regarding our updated website. In the interim, please use the current website ( for all transactions and updates.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact us at 800-694-5285 or
