FREE Practice Question: Couples Counseling

Posted by Heidi Tobe

January 8, 2018 at 10:45 AM

Couples therapy is a topic the ASWB loves to put on their licensing exams. This can be a challenging area for many people preparing to test, as a lot of us do not have any experience engaging in couples work. One of the areas within couples therapy they like to assess your knowledge and skill on is what you would do if a couple divulges physical or emotional abuse to you. Do you know what to do when this occurs? This is important subject matter for both the exam and your practice should you ever encounter it. Here’s a sample question to see if you are ready to successfully approach this topic on the exam!

Facebook Group Update!

coaching-1.jpgOn October 24th, after months of planning and discussion, we launched our first private Facebook study group for our LMSW and LCSW users. We weren’t sure what to expect or how many of our users would be interested. Now, just over 3 weeks in, we are excited to share we already have over 500 group members, and it is growing every day! The first couple days the posts rolled in slowly as people became acclimated to what the group is and how to use it. Now, the page is flooded daily with people asking questions about some of the trickier content, discussing specific practice questions from the programs, asking for and lending support to their peers, and sharing their stories of success as we have people passing their exams every day!
