No!! Gatekeeping is there for a reason...

This is ridiculous. As a multi-state licensed trauma therapist, looking at the caliber of residents and supervisees that are coming into the field after receiving their training online during COVID, residents/supervisees need MORE supervision, not less. What happened to being the "gatekeepers" of the profession? We are the LOWEST paid medical professionals that are held to the HIGHEST standards of care and we want to reduce supervision? This petition is the reason we are not taken seriously in the greater medical community! 

I firmly DISAGREE with lowering our standards further.
