Oppose CACREP Measure

As a practicing therapist who received an excellent education from a non-CACREP accredited institution, I strongly urge you to defeat this measure. This is a power grab by CACREP, which stands to make a lot of money if all potential counselors are required to attend one of their accredited programs. The strong-arm tactics they have used to prevent counselors from non-CACREP accredited insitutions from serving veterans, is just one example of maneuvers that are designed to serve the organization and not clients. Please consider this carefully before enacting! Thanks for your time.
