1115 - BOARD OF BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES
The Board of Behavioral Sciences licenses and regulates Marriage and Family Therapists, Licensed Clinical Social Workers, Licensed Educational Psychologists, and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors. The confidential and sensitive nature of services these licensees perform necessitates the development and enforcement of performance standards and competence consistent with the public welfare. The Board ensures that minimum competency standards are met by establishing educational and experience requirements, conducting examinations, investigating violations of professional ethics and law, and disciplining licensees when appropriate.
