Recording: Licensure Portability Considerations

CAMFT Course Page

Course Description:
Licensure portability is a key part of easing workforce barriers for professions. Whether easing the path for an MFT migrating from one state to another or making it easier for clinicians to obtain multi-state licensure, a focused strategy, tailored to the unique needs and characteristics of our working professionals, is vital to the future of the profession.

Over the past 12 months, CAMFT Board and staff have met with AAMFT representatives to review research and approaches to portability that make the most sense for our Californian MFTs and those who are interested in moving to or working within our state. Last fall, AAMFT’s Board adopted an aggressive and targeted strategy that we concur is the best approach for our industry at this time, designed to ease barriers and challenges for our industry in the most effective way.
