Founded in 1987, ABE issues the BCD (Board Certified Diplomate in Clinical Social Work) and other advanced national certifications. Like ACSWA, ABE is operated by the nonprofit Center for Clinical Social Work, Inc. The Center, founded in 2006, has a board of directors made up of clinical social workers and a full-time staff based in Massachusetts and California. ABE’s main purposes are to set standards for the advanced practice of Clinical Social Work, to issue certifications, and to educate the public about the value of these certifications and the services of those who hold them.  ABE conducts outreach to the public, government, and healthcare companies on behalf of its certificants. This includes exhibiting at healthcare conferences; educating service-users and advocating for certificants; publishing information; and interacting with professional and regulatory associations.
