In Favor, Residents Accepting Payments

Supervisors are valuable to Residents in Counseling.  Their time, knowledge and efforts are best served in that role, not with the amount of time involved in accounting, with Residents in Counseling payments.  Residents accepting payments allows Supervisors to continue their focus and time where it should be directed.  Residents in Counseling on the path to licensure following the rules and regulations have many ways they demonstrate they are not practicing autonomously.  Allowing Residents in Counseling to accept payments is demonstrating support and acknowledgement that the Residents also have their priorities focused on the profession.
