Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The issue of licensure has divided the profession of mental health counseling (Arbuckle, 1977; Cottingham, 1978; Sweeney and Witmer, 1977). Some professional mental health counselors adhere to the philosophy that licensure advances the profession (Carroll, Griggs & Halligan, 1977; Sweeney & Witmer, 1977). Opponents to licensure purport that licensing in itself will not advance the field nor will it necessarily ensure the delivery of quality psychological services (Davis, 1981; Gross, 1977, 1978; Tiedeman, 1979).
