Professional licensing and clinical practice : Credentialling electives for master's degree practitioners.
Health care reform and managed care have transformed mental health practice.
Already, reduced patient benefits, health care rationing, and organizational downsizing and mergers have re-contoured health care delivery.
Within this changing climate, clinicians are faced with decreased numbers of sessions with patients, reduced fees, and increased competition.
This paper examines credentialling options to enhance professional viability for master's degree practitioners.
Specific attention is paid to credentialling standards of Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, Licensed Professional Counselors, Certified School Psychologists, Licensed Masters Level Psychologists, and Licensed Clinical Social Workers since these areas provide designations to enhance practice opportunities.
