Psychological and Social Worker AttorneyAre you familiar with the complex rules and regulations for applying and gaining your professional phycology or social work license? In addition to the application forms, you must also be familiar with the specific acts and rules regarding your profession.

Get Your License The Right Way

The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) has strict standards that you must satisfy in order to become licensed in the psychology and social work professions. Although there are specific educational and experience requirements that ordinarily must be met, the IDFPR may grant a variance in certain circumstances. Get your license the right way and speak with an attorney to ensure that you meet all requirements for applying and/or renewing your professional license.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker Accused of Practicing While License was Inactive

The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) filed a complaint against a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) for practicing without an active license. The clinical social worker’s license was inactive when she worked for the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). We explained to the IDFPR that the clinical social worker was not required to have an active LCSW license under the DCFS Agency Counseling Program Plan, and a licensure requirement is exempted by DCFS regulations. Additionally, the Clinical Social Work and Social Work Practice Act exempts from the licensure requirement any person who is employed by the government, and we demonstrated that the clinical social worker only treated DCFS patients while her license was inactive. We convinced the IDFPR to withdraw its complaint and restore her LCSW license to active status.
