The Board of Professional Counselors wants to provide direction for Licensed Professional Counselors who engage in the practice of technology assisted distance counseling.
The Board recommends the NBCC guidelines as a resource for technology assisted distance counseling.
From the minutes of the January 2011 Board of Professional Counselors' Meeting:
The Board's position is that to provide services to Alaskans, you should be licensed in Alaska. They support the AASCB stand that, if you have a patient in a state you should be licensed in that state.
Per our statutes, we do not have practice protection, but one cannot represent them self as a Licensed Professional Counselor in Alaska if they are not an LPC licensed in the state of Alaska.
