NEWARK – The State Board of Marriage and Family Therapy Examiners (Board) has proposed amendments regarding the timing of when a plan of supervision of an associate marriage and family therapist must be submitted and approved, and to specify whose responsibility it is to create the plan.
Existing regulations require applicants for licensure as associate marriage and family therapists to submit a written plan of supervision prior to receiving a license. The proposed amendments remove that requirement, allowing the plan of supervision to be submitted after the applicant is licensed. The proposed amendments also specify that it is the responsibility of a qualified supervisor to create a written plan of supervision, and that the Board must approve the plan prior to the performance of counseling by the licensed associate marriage and family therapist in accordance with statutory requirements.
The proposed regulation and information on submitting a comment can be viewed here. All comments must be submitted by February 18, 2022.
