Licensing of Psychologists and Counselors in Florida: An Opinion and Recommendations.
Morgan, James I.
This paper discusses the Psychological Licensing Act in Florida as it relates to doctoral level counselors with degrees of a "psychological nature," as opposed to degrees with a "major in psychology." By implication, it addresses problems of licensure of professionals in many states who identify themselves as counseling psychologists and whose degrees are awarded by non-APA approved programs in colleges of education. This paper should be of special interest to counselors in private practice who do not currently enjoy licensing as counselors or as psychologists. Specific recommendations for licensing of psychologists, counselors, clinical social workers, and marriage and family counselors under a revised Florida statute are made. (Author)
