In addition, experience may be gained by the trainee solely as part of the position for which the trainee volunteers or is employed. Additional Notes: A student must be enrolled in a practicum course while counseling clients, except as specified in subdivision (c) of Section (iv) of the California Laws and Regulations. How man supervision hours must a student obtain during practicum? As a Trainee (someone who enrolled in a qualified program), an individual needs to receive at least one unit of supervision contact for every five hours of psychotherapy or counseling performed.

5 What is the minimum number of post-graduate supervision hours required by this State, and how many of these hours must be individual supervision? California requires that supervision shall include at least one hour of direct supervisor contact in each week for which experience is credited in each work setting, as specified: (1) A trainee shall receive an average of at least one hour of direct supervisor contact for every five hours of client contact in each setting. (2) An individual supervised after being granted a qualifying degree shall receive at least one additional hour of direct supervisor contact for every week in which more than 10 hours of client contact is gained in each setting. No more than five hours of supervision, whether individual or group, shall be credited during any single week. For purposes of this section, one hour of direct supervisor contact means one hour per week of faceto-face contact on an individual basis or two hours per week of face-to-face contact in a group. Direct supervisor contact shall occur within the same week as the hours claimed. (5) Direct supervisor contact provided in a group shall be provided in a group of not more than eight supervisees and in segments lasting no less than one continuous hour. An intern may be credited with supervised experience completed in any setting that meets both of the following: (A) Lawfully and regularly provides mental health counseling or psychotherapy. (B) Provides oversight to ensure that the intern s work at the setting meets the experience and supervision requirements set forth in this chapter and is within the scope of practice for the profession as defined in California rules. Starting January 1, 2010, MFT Interns working in a governmental entity, school, college/university, or an institution that is both nonprofit and charitable may obtain all supervision via videoconferencing. Videoconferencing has not been defined in California rules other than it must be two-way and occur in real time (live). Videoconferencing is considered the same as face to face direct supervisor contact. Additional Notes: Group supervision sessions shall include no more than eight (8) persons receiving supervision. Only in a private practice setting does a supervisor need to be employed by, and practice at, the same site as the applicant s employer. In a setting that is not a private practice, the supervisor may be employed by the registrant s employer on either a paid or voluntary basis. An off-site supervisor must sign a letter of agreement with the agency employing the applicant. What are the State requirements for an individual to be qualified as a supervisor? Only licensed mental health professionals can supervise Trainees and Interns in California. Licensed mental health professionals include licensed marriage and family therapists, licensed clinical social workers, licensed psychologists, and licensed physicians certified in psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. Additionally, the supervisor must maintain a current valid California license. The supervisor must have held that license for at least two (2) years and practiced psychotherapy or directly supervised trainees, interns, or associate clinical social workers that perform psychotherapy as part of their clinical practice for at least two years within the last five-year period immediately preceding supervision. The California Board requires supervisors of Trainees and Interns to complete a minimum of six (6) hours of supervision training or coursework within two years immediately preceding supervision (or within 60 days of commencement of supervision) and every renewal period thereafter. Psychologists and physicians certified in psychiatry are exempt from supervision training.
6 Does the state require the National Examination offered by the Association of Marital and Family Therapy Regulatory Boards (AMFTRB)? California does not use the test provided by AMFTRB, but requires its own tests. Beginning January 1, 2013: An applicant for licensure as a marriage and family therapist shall pass the following two examinations as prescribed by the board: (1) A California law and ethics examination. (2) A clinical examination. Additional Notes: Beginning January 1, 2013: Upon registration with the board, a marriage and family therapist intern shall, within the first year of registration, take an examination on California law and ethics. (c) A registrant may take the clinical examination only upon meeting all of the following requirements: (1) Completion of all required supervised work experience. (2) Completion of all education requirements. (3) Passage of the California law and ethics examination. Does the State have specific training requirements beyond the graduate degree? None are noted. Can an individual with a criminal history request board review before actually having to apply for licensure? While California does not review these requests for applicants to an MFT program or for students in programs, when an individual graduates from a qualified program, they must register within 90 days of when the degree was conferred to become a registered Intern. During the registration process, these individuals will undergo a Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) criminal history background check. It is at this point an individual will know if they qualify for licensure in California. The California Code of Regulations, Title 16, Section 1813 states: "When considering the denial of a license or registration under Section 480 of the Code, the board, in evaluating the rehabilitation of the applicant and his or her present eligibility for a license or registration shall consider the following criteria:(a) The nature and severity of the act(s) or crime(s) under consideration as grounds for denial.(b) Evidence of any act(s) committed subsequent to the act(s) or crime(s) under consideration as grounds for denial which also could be considered as grounds for denial under Section 480 of the Code.(c) The time that has elapsed since commission of the act(s) or crime(s) referred to in Section 480 of the Code.(d) The extent to which the applicant has complied with any terms of probation, parole, restitution, or any other sanctions lawfully imposed against the applicant.(e) Evidence, if any, of rehabilitation submitted by the applicant."
