The Certificate in Mental Health, Addiction, and the Family centers around the evidence that healing is the most robust in a relational context. This certificate is unique to Tulane University's School of Social Work. Our program is a rigorous combination of coursework, certificate-related field placements, and our signature Journal Club/ Community meetings component. The Journal Club/Community meetings component is designed to give the student opportunities to network and discuss certificate-related topics.
The certificate is affiliated and funded by the Porter Cason Institute (PCI). PCI is the result of a large private contribution from a Tulane MSW alumnus for the purpose of training. Funds from PCI allow us to augment training with lectures from local and national experts as well as provide advanced training of professionals in our community.
This certificate centers around developing creativity and courage in your time at Tulane and in your career. Social work is both an art and a science. We teach the science and provide a place for you to understand and develop your own unique art within ethical and evidence-based interventions.

- One core MSW curriculum paper per semester
