On April 19th, 2022, Nebraska became the 10th state to sign into law the Counseling Compact legislation. “Now that 10 states have enacted the legislation, the compact will officially go into effect, enabling professional counselors who meet uniform licensure requirements to quickly obtain a privilege to practice, which is equivalent to a license to practice counseling in another state.

This is exciting and impactful news that responds to the need for licensure portability while maintaining regulation of practice in order to provide for legal-ethical practice standards and continuity of and access to care in this age of teletherapy and highly mobile populations. However, it does not mean that there are not — or will not continue to be — restrictions and requirements for cross-jurisdictional practice. What, then, do you need to know about the changing regulatory environment in order to navigate your cross-jurisdictional practice considerations?

In this practical application oriented presentation and Q&A session, we will hear directly from the regulators what the considerations regarding cross-jurisdictional practice are that we need to be undertaking.

  • How to determine privilege to practice in another licensure jurisdiction
  • What does documenting due diligence regarding permission to practice in another jurisdiction entail?
  • What is the most effective way to communicate with and obtain answers from licensing boards when performing due diligence?
