The LPCANC Story behind the LPC-Supervisor Credential

Did you know that LPCANC was responsible for the LPC-S concept and actually lobbied to create the LPC-Supervisor credential?  In 2009, LPCANC sought to advance the profession of counseling in North Carolina by drafting legislation and successfully lobbying for the LPC Act of 2009 legislation; thereby creating both the LPC-Associate license and the LPC-Supervisor license credentials.

  • Provides more learning engagement opportunities with peers and instructors

  • Affords better flow of group and 1:1 discussion; makes communication more direct and effective, favors expression of ideas & greater range of opinions
