According to the ListServe feed from the Board of Behavioral Science in California, as of January 1, 2012, an eligible supervisor of a Marriage and Family Therapy intern (MFT intern), an associate clinical social worker (ASW), or a professional clinical counselor intern (PCC Intern) in a private practice setting may supervise or employ, at any one time, “no more than a total of three individuals registered as an MFT intern, ASW, or PCC Intern. A marriage and family therapy corporation, a licensed clinical social worker’s corporation, or a professional clinical counselor corporation may employ, at any one time, no more than a total of three individuals registered as an MFT intern, ASW, or PCC Intern for each employee or shareholder who has satisfied the requirements stipulated in law. Any of the previously mentioned corporations may not employ, at any one time, more than a total of 15 individuals registered as an MFT intern, ASW, or PCC Intern.
In no event shall any supervisor supervise, at any one time, more than a total of three individuals registered as either an MFT intern, ASW, or PCC Intern (SB 943, Chapter 350, Statutes of 2011).”

AB 956 (Chapter 166, Statutes of 2011) makes several changes in law regarding disclosures to patients, as well as advertisements for marriage and family therapy services. These changes will become effective on January 1, 2012.
The changes to the law are as follows:
1. Disclosure: Requires an unlicensed marriage and family therapist intern to provide each client or patient, prior to performing any professional services, with the following information (BPC §4980.44(c)): a. That he or she is an unlicensed marriage and family therapist registered intern (current law); b. His or her registration number (new provision); c. The name of his or her employer (new provision); and d. Indicate whether he or she is under the supervision of a licensed marriage and family therapist, licensed clinical social worker, licensed psychologist, or a licensed physician and surgeon certified in psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (current law, but now the MFT intern must indicate the type of supervising licensee).
2. Advertising: Requires any advertisement by or on behalf of a marriage and family therapist intern must include, at a minimum, all of the following (BPC §4980.44(d)): a. That he or she is a marriage and family therapist registered intern; b. The intern’s registration number; c. The name of his or her employer; and d. That he or she is supervised by a licensed person.
1. Disclosure: Requires an MFT trainee to inform each client or patient, prior to performing any professional services, of the following (BPC §4980.48(a)): a. That he or she is an unlicensed marriage and family therapist trainee (current law); b. The name of his or her employer (new provision); c. Indicate whether he or she is under the supervision of a licensed marriage and family therapist, licensed clinical social worker, licensed psychologist, or a licensed physician certified in psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (current law, but now the MFT trainee must indicate the type of supervising licensee).
2. Advertising: Requires any advertisement of services performed by a trainee must include, at a minimum, all of the following (BPC §4980.48(b) and (c)): a. Trainee’s name, and that he or she is a marriage and family therapist trainee; b. The name of his or her employer; and c.

2010: Regulations for Psychological Assistants in Private Practice and a New Supervision Agreement Form
CPA has reminded Psychologists and Psychological Assistants that new Supervision Agreements are in place for use between Supervisors and Trainees. They note the following in Progress Notes:
In 2008, PROGRESS NOTES published proposed Board of Psychology regulations relevant to psychological assistants in private practice settings. In that article, PROGRESS NOTES advised psychologists who were involved in supervision to become familiar with those regulations. Those regulations went into effect on August 23, 2009 and PN is again providing this important information for supervisors and psychologists-in training. In part, the new regulations provide that (1) the supervision agreement must include an educational plan and, (2) the plan must be approved by the BOP prior to the start of SPE. In response to questions, the Board of Psychology has clarified that a psychological assistant registration that was approved prior to August 23, 2009 and has completed an old supervision agreement form will not need to complete a new supervision agreement form for prior approval on or after August 23, 2009. The Board will accept the old form as long as the registration was approved prior to August 23, 2009.

Social Work Organizations
“The Association of Social Work Boards is the nonprofit organization composed of and owned by the social work regulatory boards and colleges of all 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and all 10 Canadian provinces. We are the only nonprofit organization dedicated to social work regulation. Our mission is to provide support and services to the social work regulatory community to advance safe, competent, and ethical practices to strengthen public protection.
ASWB owns and maintains the social work licensing examinations that are used to test a social worker’s competence to practice ethically and safely. The Examination Committee meets up to four times a year to review questions for the exams. Exams are administered throughout the year at secure test centers in North America and abroad.
The association developed and maintains a model practice act that offers regulatory bodies a resource for developing their own laws and regulations. Other member board services include the ACE program for approved continuing education, CE audit contract services, license application and issuance contract services, the Public Protection Database, and Look Up a License. The association holds two meetings annually for its membership, the Association Education Conference and the Annual Meeting of the Delegate Assembly in the fall. New Board Member Training sessions and Administrator Workshop training sessions are held regularly. Association publications include a bimonthly electronic newsletter, the Association News. In partnership with CSWE-accredited schools of social work, ASWB offers an educational initiative, Path to Licensure, designed to strengthen student and faculty knowledge of professional regulation and its important connection to public protection and social work values and ethics.”
The California BBS site details steps and requirements for social worker’s pursuing associate clinical social worker (ASW) or licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) status.
CalSWEC is a coalition of social work educators and practicioners. The organization focuses on social work pedagogy items such as access, scholarship, curriculum, evaluation and research.
“Founded in 1952, the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) is the national association representing social work education in the United States. Its members include over 750 accredited baccalaureate and master’s degree social work programs, as well as individual social work educators, practitioners, and agencies dedicated to advancing quality social work education. Through its many initiatives, activities, and centers, CSWE supports quality social work education and provides opportunities for leadership and professional development, so that social workers play a central role in achieving the profession’s goals of social and economic justice. CSWE’s Commission on Accreditation is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation as the sole accrediting agency for social work education in the United States and its territories.”
“Founded in 1955, the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) is the largest membership organization of professional social workers in the world, with more than 120,000 members. NASW works to enhance the professional growth and development of its members, to create and maintain professional standards, and to advance sound social policies.”
