We have updated the LPCC version of TrackYourHours so that you can now track your experience with couples, families and children.
Per the BBS, counselors who would like to assess and treat couples and families or supervise Marriage and Family Therapist Interns (MFTIs) should include 500 hours of supervised practice with couples, families and children in their internship. These hours must be under the supervision of a LMFT or a LPCC who has met these extra requirements.
We have updated the LPCC version of TrackYourHours to allow you to document your experience with couples, families and children. In addition, we have added a new report that includes your couples, families and children hours. Learn how to log and report your CFC hours.
