The essential update for 2020
Basics of California Law for LMFTs, LPCCs, and LCSWs [7th edition] available now
There were many impactful legal and ethical changes in the past year. Among the changes we've included:
- Updated to 2020 law and new CAMFT Code of Ethics
- New state laws on independent contractors, required notice to clients, license portability, qualified supervisors and more
- Added information on telehealth, “non-compete” clauses in employment contracts, and confidentiality exceptions in treatment contracts

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.

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.
