In the section Education and Credentialing, I recommend changing the wording from "Earning the direct clinical contact hours required to become an LCSW in a given
state, which may vary from zero to 1,500 hour" to remove the "from zero to 1500 hours since there are some states that require more than 1500 hours. Just keep it "may vary".

It seems very thorough and complete. There is certainly a need for this. Thank you for your work on it.

I recommend some changes in the language and style of the self-care section and conclusion. It seems as though the style changed at this point in the document.
