Title: Navigating the Licensure Process
Date: December 8, 2020
Presenters: Drs. Levette Scott, Kelly King, and Kyla Kurian
Graduation is approaching!! Now what? How do I navigate through this licensure process? What do I need? Who can help me? In this session we will discuss the process and procedures of becoming licensed as a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor-Associate and eventually Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor. This session will focus on discussing the National Counseling Examination (NCE), application process, the jurisprudence exam, the licensure affidavit, the disclosure statement, and the supervision contract. We will have a conversation about this process, the do’s and don’ts of this process.
At the end of this session students will be able to:
- Provide an overview of the eight parts for the National Counseling Examination content.
- Identify items needed for the application process.
- Identify what the Jurisprudence exam entails.
- Understand the role of supervision and how to choose a qualified supervisor.
Taking the CPCE this spring?
The CPCE testing window for the spring semester of 2021 is March 15-26, 2021.
Test-taking Strategies Workshop - Spring 2021 - January 24, 2021
The purpose of this workshop is to assist students with strategies and skills to take the NCE and CPCE exams. Topics include managing test-taking anxiety, personalizing a study plan, and practicing multiple study strategies (e.g., mnemonic devices, flash cards). This workshop is meant to supplement your continued study of core content. While we will cover exam content throughout the day, it will not be our sole or primary focus.
