It's a sea change. The 5th edition of Basics of California Law for LMFTs, LPCCs, and LCSWs is available now.
For the 5th edition of Basics, we've made the biggest changes since the book launched. Here's just a taste:
- New section on Employment Law
- New section on Family Law
- An entire chapter devoted to Supervision
- Deeper discussion of Technology
- New coverage of current Controversies
- Fully updated to 2018 law
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."
We're fighting for you: California's broken MFT Clinical Exam
I delivered prepared remarks on the low MFT Clinical Exam pass rate at the Board of Behvaioral Sciences (BBS) meeting November 2 in Orange, CA.
Why we're launching #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.
