Licensed Bachelor Social Worker (LBSW)

A Licensed Bachelor Social Worker (LBSW) is a professional who has completed a bachelor's degree in social work and obtained licensure to practice within the field.

While the specific title and requirements may vary by jurisdiction, an LBSW typically represents an entry-level license for individuals with a bachelor's degree in social work.

LBSWs may provide a range of supportive services and assistance to Bereaved communities suffering from Grief, but only under the supervision of higher-level licensed social workers or other mental health professionals.

They may work in settings such as social service agencies, community organizations, schools, healthcare facilities, and government agencies. The exact responsibilities and roles of an LBSW can vary depending on their workplace and the regulations of their licensing jurisdiction.

They often engage in tasks such as case management, client advocacy, resource coordination, and helping individuals access necessary services.

To see patients independently, a LBSW must earn a masters degree and become licensed in their state as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) or Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW).
