Licensing from the Provider's Point of View.
Colbert, Judith A.
This paper examines licensing from the provider's point of view. It is based on the premise that a healthy relationship between the licenser and licensee is based on knowledge and the free exchange of information. More specifically, four areas are examined: (1) licensing, as one of the many forms of regulation in our society; (2) legislation, as the authority granting the right to license (the roles of licensing statutes and regulations are discussed, as well as the overall points a licensee should know); (3) literature, which highlights the importance for licensees to have as much background knowledge as possible in relation to licensing requirements and the relevant literature in their field; and (4) locality, which underlines the importance of providers' knowing their particular licensing situations, especially when licensed settings are shared with work sites, churches, schools, or other organizations. The paper suggests that licensing is a powerful tool for regulating service delivery and protecting the health, safety, and welfare of vulnerable populations. It asserts that if all parties know and accept their roles in the licensing process, they are more likely to ensure better outcomes for children, families, and society at large. (AA)
