Level of Learning: Introductory This presentation is intended to provide an overview of the licensing process for pre-licensees as they work toward licensure in marriage and family therapy. Topics to be discussed include: the marriage and family therapy licensing process; supervised experience requirements for applicants including the AB 690 practice settings changes; supervisor qualifications and new supervision requirements; licensing examinations; and common employment issues pre-licensees encounter with their supervisors.
Participants will gain a greater understanding of the licensure process, the rules and requirements, and the challenges facing pre-licensees working toward licensure.
Participants will be able to identify the requirements for counting hours toward licensure. Participants will be able to state the number of hours and the number of weeks of supervised experience pre- licensees are required to meet. Participants will be able to identify how the “new” 90-day rule pertaining to post-degree hours differs from the “old” 90-day rule.
