Accompanying Jurisprudence

While I agree wholehaeartedly that the number of hours a person completes under supervision is not a direct signe of comptency and can be modified in an appropriate manner, I strongly believe that additional measure need to be intituted to ensure that new and continuing therapists are competent. While additional testing may not be the answer, I would recommend some form of skills based jurisprudence be instituted to support this change with minimal risk to consumers.
