  • Power point presentation by Dr. David Hamilton, Executive Secretary, State Education Department. To access a pdf of the presentation (which includes access to the actual forms needed to apply for a waiver), please click here. 
  • You can watch a shorter video (below) addressing the need for organizations that may require a waiver to authorize your setting as an employer of licensed social workers.

    Please Note: The video is titled "Authorized Settings for Provision of Mental Health Services”. The need for waivers extends well beyond mental health services and pertains to any program employing licensed social workers, as well as utilizing social work interns engaged in work normally done by licensed social workers. Watch the video with this in mind.
