Overview of Research Study:

The purpose of our study was to learn how other professions have navigated developmental issues, such as solidifying and publically promoting a unified professional identity and creating an infrastructure that fosters licensure portability for practitioners. We conducted a qualitative study gathering the profession-related narratives of key people from non-counseling professions. Results suggest counseling specializations unite under one profession, endorse consistent educational standards, and develop model language to achieve licensure portability.
