Chapter VI: Allowing Master's Level Interns

Page 10- directive on who can render services: Recommend explicitly including wording to allow Master’s level Social Work, Counseling, and Marriage and Family Therapy students to provide services under guidance of LPC, LCSW, or LMFT (even if not able to be reimbursed). This will help allow more internship opportunities and grow the work force. Current regs the way they are worded prevent using interns in many settings even under supervision.
