I do not support

I do not support this change in licensure requirement in Virginia. The process for licensure is already complex and lacks limited support for those who are seeking licensure.  The supervision process makes it difficult for those who are at the MSW level afford not only a college education yet the cost of registering and paying weekly for supervision.  I often receive multiple request for clinical supervision as there is also a limited number of LCSW's who can provide quality supervision.  I think the focus should be on how we can best support and uplift those who want to and are already engaged in social work practice.
