Children’s Minnesota clinical social work services focus on the psychological and social impact of the health care needs on the family system. We assist patients and families with the physical, emotional and social issues and concerns that exist during a hospitalization. By providing information about health and illness (including grief and loss), we hope to encourage patients and families become active participants in their care.

Clinical social workers at Children’s Minnesota are masters-level educated clinicians (MSW) and most are clinically licensed (LICSW) by the Minnesota Board of Social Work.
