Discussion was held on proposed law and rules including service extenders, supervision requirements, time frames and who can do supervision.  Jun Shiosaki moved to table the discussion, Dawna Jackson seconded the motion, motion carried. 

Lisa Johnson met with the Board to explain her application and lack of practicum.  Ms. Johnson would like the Board to consider her residency in Arizona in lieu of the required practicum of three credit hours she is lacking.  The Board by consensus tabled the discussion to a later time. 

The tabled law and rules were brought up for continued discussion. Proposed laws were drafted for Licensed Professional Counselors and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy supervisors and interns.   The Board would like the word “state” changed to “jurisdiction” in the new laws. 

A separate bill is to be drafted to reword the faith-based counseling exemption. 

Roberta Crockett moved to hold the legislation for the law change for service extenders for this session and take drafts to the Associations for input.  Dawna Jackson seconded the motion, motion carried.  By the July meeting the draft for proposed law and rule changes will be ready to take to the Association.

Dr. Jones moved to remove all proposed language referencing Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy from the new proposed rules and accept everything else.  Dawna Jackson seconded the motion, motion carried. 

The matter of Lisa Johnson needing three practicum credits was discussed.  Dr. Birdsall moved to accept the residency in Arizona at the Phoenix Interfaith Counseling in lieu of the practicum. Ms. Johnson must complete a three semester, graduate counseling course to complete the licensure process for the Professional Counselor license.  Ms. Johnson may use any clinical post-licensure hours in Arizona toward the Clinical Professional Counselor license in Idaho. Jun Shiosaki seconded the motion, motion carried. 

Discussion was held on the use of the National Clinical Mental Health Examination for the Clinical Professional Counselor license.  Dawna Jackson moved to contact Jack Sutton or another representative from AASCB to make a presentation at the July 10-11 meeting of the Board.  Jun Shiosaki seconded the motion, motion carried. 


Dr. Jones moved to accept the continuing education hours for Clinical Professional Counselors and Marriage and Family Therapy as interchangeable and only 20 hours are needed if a person holds both licenses.  Dawna Jackson seconded the motion, motion carried. 

The Board would like the application language changed from “moral turpitude” to “good moral character.” 


The Board would like the blue supervision pages with the notarized signature of both the applicant and the supervisor to be added to the application packet.  

Discussion of Rules included:  

Dr. Birdsall moved to accept the addition to rule 150.02.d, 225.01.d, 235.03.d and 238.03.d  ”Supervised experience shall be determined to be acceptable to the Board upon the favorable recommendation of the supervisor by a signed, notarized affidavit.”   Jun Shiosaki seconded the motion, motion carried.

The meeting recessed until May 8, 2002.
