US Army Recognizes CACREP Grads for Independent Practice--In October the US Department of the Army finally opened up employment eligibility for independent practice to LPC/LMHC-licensed graduates of CACREP accredited programs. The policy emerged after a long-delayed Army review of hiring standards for LPCs/LMHCs that began in 2014. The new policy represents a significant breakthrough for the profession. Currently, other active duty branches of the Department of Defense do not recognize LPCs/LMHCs for independent practice, but the Army policy will put internal pressure on these branches to conform their personnel policies to TRICARE’s and the Army’s.
