Serve as collaborator in human behavioral issues with, and consultant to, community agencies, health care providers, and organizational leaders.
Master’s level graduates who have recently (within the past year) obtained a master’s level license such as an LPC or psychological associate license, will be fully supervised during their first year of employment as a behavioral health practitioner.
LPCs or psychological associates with 2 or more years’ experience (after attaining licensure), will receive general supervision, according to the individual’s level of competence, as assessed by his/her supervisor.
LPCs or psychological associates with more than 2 years’ experience and with post-master’s work leading to a specialty degree, will require supervision in their specialty with difficult, high-risk cases, or for cases in which one or more of the patient’s problems fall outside the scope of the counselor’s specialty.
