|Action||Requirement for CACREP accreditation for educational programs|

I oppose Virigina moving to a CACREP-only program requirement for licensure. Such a move eliminates counseling psychology programs from providing well-qualified professionals for the LPC. There is no compelling evidence that CACREP programs produce graduates who are more skilled, competent clinicians. Moreover, such a requirement restricts trade for many other professionals who also have counselor identities.
