    Navigating the Road to Licensure

    Luke Martin, Esq.
    CAMFT Staff Attorney

    A Zoom Presentation

    2.0 CEUs

    Presentation Description

    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; supervisor qualifications and supervision requirements; licensing examinations; and common employment issues pre-licensees encounter with their supervisors. 

    Presentation Topics

    Participants will gain a greater understanding of the many challenges facing pre-licensees working toward licensure. Participants will be able to:

    • Record the number of hours and the number of weeks of supervised experience required
    • Identify the “options” for counting hours currently available to pre-licensees
    • Apply how the 90-day rules impacts their ability to count hours
    • Differentiate how to advertise themselves in the various stages of licensing
    • Organize their hours by documenting on the correct BBS related forms
    • Review their incremental progress toward licensure and decide on their best strategies to take to complete their 3000 hours.
