In favor

I am in favor of residents taking payment directly from clients with the understanding that they are already under supervision of a licensed clinician. However, I do believe that the board should have guidelines that specify the scope of this happening under direct supervision. The board has gone to great lengths to clarify in writing the restriction of residents taking payment; therefore, if the rule was changed I can only imagine that there would be clarification and guidelines for the allowance of such practice.
