Welcome from the President
Hello! It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Kentucky Society for Clinical Social Work Board of Directors! My name is Chris Whitsell and I am the president for the Board. I have been a licensed clinical social worker since 2001 and in the field of behavioral health since 1992. I had always desired to be more involved in the KSCSW and after my retirement from Community Mental Health in 2019 I was able to find time in my demanding schedule to get more involved! I have found this Board to be invigorating and in alignment with the values I cherish. I look forward to every Board meeting and continue to see opportunities to be involved in ways that I believe help promote a strong community of clinical social work!
There will be multiple avenues for your desired level of involvement, all of which fit with busy schedules and of which you will find genuine comradery and flexibility! You are beginning a two year term that will leverage your talents, passion and commitment.
Active participation includes:
You will play a key role in helping the Board with upcoming strategic plans that will build on previous efforts and assist the organization with advancing advocacy, education and community! It is my belief that we are well positioned to not only respond to the many social justice threats and opportunities for advocacy for all but positioned with initiative and vigor to embrace any challenges and partner together for the well being of all!
I look forward to the opportunities that lie ahead for the KSCSW and am so excited to welcome you at this time! Thank you so much for your willingness to share your time, talents and vision with the KSCSW and the community of clinical social workers across this state! Please don’t hesitate to call on any of us with questions and contributions as we work to promote and advance the values of social work and contribute to this rich history!
