A Message From The Founder

Amanda Rowan, LCSW

If you are reading this, it probably means you are planning to take your Social Work Exam or MFT licensing exam soon. Maybe you’ve taken the exam once and failed, or maybe this will be your first attempt. Either way, here at the Therapist Development Center we understand that you only want to invest time and money into a program that is going to help you learn what you need to pass.

I know what you are going through because I also struggled to find the right Social Work Exam Prep program. I bought books and apps. I attended LCSW Exam workshops. I felt completely overwhelmed with content and disorganized with my studying. When I took the Social Work Exam, I passed, but I was shocked to see that most of what I studied was not on the LCSW Exam! I felt I had wasted time and money on programs that didn’t help me at all. I also realized that many of the Social Work Prep programs were created by people who never took the actual Social Work Exams! So they had no idea what the real exam was like. I also knew from my undergraduate major in the neuroscience of learning that there was a smarter way to study. I decided to create my own study systems.That is how the Therapist Development Center was born.

Selecting a Social Work Exam Prep Program or MFT Exam Prep program is about one thing: TRUST. When you purchase a program or sign up for a workshop, you are trusting someone to guide you through the process of passing the licensing exam. Different companies and workshops claim to have the “best” way to prepare, but few can articulate the philosophy that guides their approach. We can.

Our philosophy is simple: You will pass with confidence when you study smart.

Our Social Work Exam and MFT Exam Study Systems work because they:

  1. Organize your studying into an easy to follow plan that saves you time and keeps you focused.
  2. Review only the essential content most likely to be tested.
  3. Teach the clinical reasoning skills that the exams test.
  4. Provide test taking strategies proven to manage anxiety and stay focused during the exam.
  5. Provide free access to an outstanding team of social work and MFT exam prep coaches to answer questions and provide support throughout the process.

People frequently want to know whether we provide a “pass guarantee.” Unfortunately, no company can (or should) guarantee that you will pass. We do, however, provide a PROMISE: we are with you until you pass. You pay only once.  When you register at The Therapist Development Center, our team of Social Work Exam and MFT Exam coaches, as well as support staff, will be 100% committed to helping you pass your exam with confidence.
