A Review of the Florida Laws and Rules for Mental Health Practitioners

This course was updated 10 days ago. If you're about to take the exam, you may benefit from reviewing the exam questions listed below before starting on the actual exam.

About the Course:

The State of Florida has introduced through legislation the requirement that licensees engaged in the practice of clinical social work, marriage and family therapy, and mental health counseling must complete three (3) hours of continuing education coursework on laws and rules as outlined in Chapter 64B4-6 (License Renewal, Continuing Education Credit). This requirement must be met by licensed practitioners of the stated disciplines/professions every third biennium following initial licensure. In essence, the rule states that during the licensure renewal period following the licensee’s second renewal is the time period that a laws and rules course must be completed. This new requirement adds to the existing requirements already in place by Florida legislation.

This course is based on the reading-based online, A Review of the Florida Laws and Rules for Mental Health Practitioners created by Michael Smith, PhD, LCSW, PIP in 2016.
