Potential for Public Confusion

I am concerned that if you use the title LPC-resident, you are sending the message to consumers of experience and qualifications met that are not the case.  The current regulations are clear as to the experience level of the therapist.  Already I perceive that consumers project onto residents having more experience that what many of them actually have.  I don't think labels should be changed that could further confuse the general public.
