The Counselor and Social Worker Board was created by legislation in 1984. The Board's primary responsibility is to protect the citizens of the State of Ohio through the licensure of Counselors, Social Workers, and Marriage and Family Therapists. The Board does this through the establishment of licensure and practice standards for the professional practice of counseling, social work, and marriage and family therapy.
