            Navigating the Road to Licensure with Kristin W. Roscoe, Esq.



            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. This course will also discuss the recent changes to MFT licensing laws as set forth in AB 93 and AB 2138.

            Educational Goals

            Participants will gain a greater understanding of the licensure process, the rules and requirements, and the challenges facing pre-licensees working toward licensure.  

            Learn about:

            • Obtaining a Qualifying Degree
            • Hours Required to Obtain Licensure
            • Registering as an Associate Marriage & Family Therapist
            • Employment as an AMFT
            • Supervisor Responsibilities
            • BBS Examinations & Application for Licensure
            • Initial License

            Measurable Learning Objectives

            1. Participants will be able to identify the requirements for counting hours toward licensure
            2. Participants will be able to analyze any currently applicable waivers issued by the Department of Consumer Affairs as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic to identify how they apply to pre-licensees
            3. Participants will be able to state the number of hours and the number of weeks of supervised experience pre-licensees are required to meet
            4. Participants will be able to identify how the new 90-day rule pertaining to post-degree hours differs from the “old” 90-day rule
            5. Participants will be able to identify appropriate work settings and common labor issues that arise in the employment of pre-licensees
