Basics of California Law for LMFTs, LPCCs, and LCSWs [6th edition] available now
It's a minor update compared to past revisions, but there's still important new stuff here:
- Updated information on Supervision based on 2019 law changes
- New practice test questions for each chapter
- Updated discussion on Emotional Support Animals, clients remaining anonymous, and other current issues
Basics is used as a textbook in law and ethics courses around the state, and as a desk reference for practicing therapists at all career levels. See why Diane Gehart, PhD calls Basics "an indispensible resource."
What our customers say
I just passed the Law and Ethics Exam mostly because of your superb online prep. You are an excellent teacher and you made the subject engaging and really interesting. A zillion thank yous! I'm ridiculously overjoyed.
I did [two other programs], and this is the first time that I am really understanding the information. I am so grateful that my colleague recommended you.
Your exam guide was awesome. The material was more than sufficient. Your training really helped me to alleviate most of the anxiety coming into this. Thank you for your time, talent, patience and leadership.
I studied your book the week before the test, and I passed! I credit that ease to the clarity of the material and the examples that stayed with me.

Why we launched #PostThePay
Too many job listings for counselors and therapists only mention pay vaguely, if they mention it at all. It's part of a culture in mental health care that keeps wages low and professionals feeling disempowered.
It's bad for employers too, as they waste time on applicants who would never accept the pay they offer -- and they leave themselves vulnerable to accusations of wage discrimination.
We'd like to change that.
