Counseling Compact Updates
Lynn E. Linde, EdD and Aprille Woodson, PhD, JD, LAPC, NCC
The Counseling Compact is an interstate compact that benefits counselor, clients, and the public. It allows counselors licensed and residing in a compact member state to practice in another compact member state without the need for multiple licenses. Clients benefit by improved continuity of care when they or their counselors travel or relocate. The public benefits because the Compact will ensure that member states rapidly share investigative and disciplinary information and cooperate in investigations by practitioners when needed. This Continuing Professional Development resource provides counselors with a rational to: (1) explain how the Counseling Compact was created and how it will operate, (2) discuss the current status of the Counseling Compact and states, and (3) review the ethical and legal guidelines issues associated with the Counseling Compact.
