Our Lab Director Kenta Asakura and Lab Affiliate Marion Bogo recently published a special issue in the Clinical Social Work Journal, Volume 49, issue 2. This special issue is the first of its kind to canvas contemporary scholarly works on simulation in advancing our professional commitment to clinical social work education and practice.

This week, we spotlight the article Guidelines for Advancing Clinical Social Work Practice Through Articulating Practice Competencies: The Toronto Simulation Model, featuring Lab Affiliates Marion Bogo and Toula Kourgiantakis. In this piece, the authors examine the role of simulation in conceptualizing and identifying key practice competencies for clinical social work. This article presents a simulation education model and illustrates how the use of simulation can enable clinical scholars to articulate core competencies in specialized areas of social work practice.
