Hi All! I have a fantastic government jobs with fantastic government benefits. I am also a LCSW in Chicago. It is not feasible nor practical to quit my job. However, I have long wanted to get my PhD/DSW. I did everything I could in my BSW and MSW education to prepare me for this path, including getting published as a first author (Journal of Human Behavior in the Social Environment), presenting at conferences, and getting the grades I needed to get. Right now, I am considering the Institute for Clinical Social Work (PhD) and USC (DSW). Both for different reasons. But I'm open to any program that is largely online with bonus points for GRE (do not get me started on standardized tests please). Also, please don't ask why I want to get a PhD/DSW. My intentions are on target for my professional goals.
