    Additional Notice on Compliance with SB 319, Act 377:

    Exemptions to the educational requirements: Clinicians who were licensed at the independent level (LCSW, LPC, LMFT) for 10 years as of April 26, 2016 and are in good standing with the Board are grandfathered in and exempt from this educational requirement. Clinicians who can provide proof on their graduate school  transcript of completion of a 3 credit hour course in differential diagnosis / psychopathology are exempt from this educational requirement. 
    At this time, the Licensing Board does not have a rule on the requirements under the new law requiring education in Differential Diagnosis / psychopathology.  The Licensing Board, by law, will decide what course or training program is acceptable. The course requirement must be completed before January 1, 2018, so LPCA has been engaged in the development of this best practice program that will thoroughly cover differential diagnosis educational training. As the rule is further clarified, any modifications to this program to meet the Board’s standards will be made and integrated into the course curriculum of this 45-hour program.
