Oppose
 

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.
