Laws & Rules Video

Brian Carnahan, Executive Director 

Ohio CSWMFT Board 

As of August 1, 2017 this video replaces the laws and rules exam. The laws and rules exam has been used successfully to help educate licensed professionals and applicants concerning Ohio’s laws and rules regarding the practice of Social Work, Counseling, and Marriage and Family Therapy.  This video is part of the Board’s on-going effort to ensure that licensees and applicants know important basic information regarding the requirements for holding a license in Ohio to practice Social Work, Counseling, and Marriage and Family Therapy.

The Board trusts that those viewing this video will read the scopes of practice and become familiar with the legal and ethical obligations one assumes upon becoming licensed. For those applying for a new license, you will attest that you have viewed the video.   Becoming familiar with the laws and rules governing the professions licensed by this Board is an ongoing obligation.

This video is an important resource you can refer to again and again, therefore we have chosen not to charge for the video. In so doing, we are not issuing a certificate showing you viewed the video, nor will it be a source of ethics continuing education credit in the future.
