The agency proposal follows:

Summary

The State Board of Marriage and Family Therapy Examiners (the Board) proposes to amend its rules to implement statutory changes pursuant to P.L. 2005, c. 49 and to reorganize its current rules.

Subchapter 1 contains general provisions. The Board proposes a new rule at N.J.A.C. 13:34-1.2, which was previously reserved, to provide a scope of practice for marriage and family therapy. The proposed scope of practice mirrors language from its authoritative statute at N.J.S.A. 45:8B-2.

Subchapter 3 sets forth permissible activities of unlicensed persons. The Board proposes amendments to Subchapter 3 for organizational purposes. More specifically, the Board proposes new N.J.A.C. 13:34-3.3(a) to define the term "intern" since it is used in the section. The definition mirrors the statute at N.J.S.A. 45:8B-6(b). The remaining subsections of N.J.A.C. 13:34-3.3 have been recodified, with only one amendment updating a cross-reference.

The Board is proposing to repeal N.J.A.C. 13:34-3.4, Supervised experience, and relocate the regulations in N.J.A.C. 13:34-3.4 to Subchapters 4 and 5 for organizational purposes. The current N.J.A.C. 13:34-3.4 concerns supervised experience, which includes the necessary experience needed to qualify for licensure. This subject area is being proposed to be included in the new Subchapter 4, Requirements for Licensure; Application Procedures. N.J.A.C. 13:34-3.4 also currently includes the responsibilities of supervisors. The responsibilities of the supervisor is being proposed to be included in new Subchapter 5, Temporary Permit Holders and Qualified Supervisors.

The Board is also proposing to repeal N.J.A.C. 13:34-3.5, Permit without supervision, because P.L. 2005, c. 49 deletes subsection (d) of N.J.S.A. 45:8B-6, which permitted an individual who is not licensed as a practicing marriage and family therapist to receive a temporary permit from the Board to practice as a marriage and family therapist without supervision for a period not exceeding one year.

N.J.A.C. 13:34-3.6 is also being proposed for repeal, but this rule is being relocated to Subchapter 5 for organizational purposes. N.J.A.C. 13:34-3.7 is being recodified as N.J.A.C. 13:34-3.4, without any change in its text.

Subchapter 4 contains the requirements for licensure and the application procedures. The Board is proposing a new subchapter heading for clarification and to be consistent with the rules for other mental health boards. The Board is proposing a new heading so that an applicant will be directed to Subchapter 4 should he or she need guidance through the application process. In addition, the Board is proposing to reorganize the sections in Subchapter 4. The Board is proposing to list the educational requirements before the experiential requirements. Therefore, the Board is proposing to recodify current N.J.A.C. 13:34-4.3, Education requirements, as N.J.A.C. 13:34-4.2, without any change in its text. The Board is also proposing the repeal of current N.J.A.C. 13:34-4.2, Experiential requirements, and its replacement with new N.J.A.C. 13:34-4.3, Experiential requirements for licensure.

For clarification and organization, the Board is proposing a definitions subsection at N.J.A.C. 13:34-4.3(a). The proposed definitions apply to N.J.A.C. 13:34-4.3 and 5 and either mirror statutory language or are consistent with other mental health professions, such as the professional counselors at N.J.A.C. 13:34-11.1.

The Board is proposing new N.J.A.C. 13:34-4.3(b) to set forth the supervised experience an applicant must possess to qualify for licensure. The concept of this subsection (supervised experience) mirrors that of current N.J.A.C. 13:34-4.2, but it has been amended to reflect the statutory amendments of P.L. 2005, c. 49.

The new law requires three years of full-time counseling experience to be eligible for licensure as a marriage and family therapist, rather than the current requirement of five years of full-time counseling. In addition, the new law stipulates that two of the three required years, instead of two of the five required years as now mandated by law, must have been under the supervision of a qualified professional. For those with a master's degree, two of the three required years must occur after the applicant has earned the master's degree, and for those with a post-master's or doctoral degree, one of the three required years must occur after the applicant has earned the post-master's or doctoral degree. As a result, the Board proposes N.J.A.C. 13:34-4.3(b) setting forth the requirement that an applicant complete a minimum of two calendar years of supervised marriage and family therapy experience and one calendar year of counseling experience, which may be in marriage and family therapy. The Board proposes a requirement that supervised marriage and family therapy experience for each calendar year consist of a minimum of 20 hours per week of actual marriage and family therapy client contact, with a minimum of one hour of supervision for every five hours of client contact; and a minimum of four hours of supervision per week, at least two hours must be individual face-to-face supervision (the remaining two hours may be individual or group supervision); and a minimum of six hours per week in other work-related activities such as preparing and maintaining client records, report writing, maintaining appointment schedules, communicating with other professionals, preparing for supervision, preparing and maintaining financial records, and any other activities the qualified supervisor deems appropriate.

The criteria for supervised experience were previously outlined in N.J.A.C. 13:34-3.4(b), but for organizational purposes, the Board is proposing to relocate the criteria to N.J.A.C. 13:34-4.3(b). The supervised experience criteria remain the same except for the number of work-related activities an applicant must complete. The Board is proposing to decrease the number of minimum hours from 11 to six. This decrease results from the overall number of hours used to define "one calendar year." The Board previously defined "one calendar year" as 1,750 hours, with 20 hours per week of actual marriage and family therapy client contact; four hours per week of supervision; and 11 hours per week in work-related activities. This break-down allowed for 35 hours per week over a 50-week period to equal a total of 1,750 hours a year. However, the Board is proposing to decrease the number of total hours per calendar year to 1,500, which is more consistent with most other mental health boards, with 20 hours per week of actual marriage and family therapy client contact; four hours per week of supervision; and six hours per week in work-related activities. This amendment allows for 30 hours per week over a 50-week period to equal a total of 1,500 hours a year. Although the Board is proposing to decrease the required number of hours for work-related activities, the proposed rule expands the scope of work-related activities that the Board will deem acceptable. The Board is proposing this expansion to give more guidance to supervisors and supervisees as to what is acceptable. Previously, work-related activities included recordkeeping, consultation and report-writing. The proposed language establishes that work-related activities include preparing and maintaining client records, report writing, maintaining appointment schedules, communicating with other professionals, preparing for supervision, preparing and maintaining financial records, and any other activities the qualified supervisor deems appropriate.

The Board is also proposing new N.J.A.C. 13:34-4.3(c) establishing that an applicant for licensure with a master's degree must complete two of the three required calendar years of experience after the applicant has earned the master's degree. This subsection reflects the new statutory language of P.L. 2005, c. 49, more specifically, N.J.S.A. 45:8B-18(b).

In addition, the Board is proposing new N.J.A.C. 13:34-4.3(d) establishing that an applicant for licensure with a post-master's or doctoral degree must complete one calendar year of marriage and family therapy experience after the applicant has earned the post-master's or doctoral degree. This rule also reflects the new statutory language of P.L. 2005, c. 49, more specifically, N.J.S.A. 45:8B-18(b). Subchapter 5 establishes the responsibilities of temporary permit holders and qualified supervisors. The Board is proposing a new subchapter to organize and outline the application procedure for temporary permit holders, their responsibilities and the responsibilities of qualified supervisors. Although this is a new subchapter, most of the rules within the subchapter are currently located at N.J.A.C. 13:34-3.4. Some of the qualified supervisor responsibilities outlined in proposed new section N.J.A.C. 13:34-5.2 mirror the responsibilities of qualified supervisors for professional counselors. The Board, however, is proposing an amendment to its rule that increases the number of permit holders a qualified supervisor can supervise at one time from three to six permit holders. This ratio is used by the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE). COAMFTE is the national accrediting body for the field of marriage and family therapy. Proposed new N.J.A.C. 13:34-5.3 outlines the responsibilities of permit holders.

The Board is proposing to recodify Subchapters 5 through 8 as Subchapters 6 through 9, with amendments necessary to update cross-references. As the Board has provided a 60-day comment period on this notice of proposal, this notice is excepted from the rulemaking calendar requirement pursuant to N.J.A.C. 1:30-3.3(a)5.

Social Impact

The proposed amendments, repeals and new rules will have a positive social impact upon the public because the Board believes that the amendments and rules protect the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of New Jersey by identifying those individuals who are qualified and legally authorized to engage in the practice of marriage and family therapy. The amendments and new rules are expected to benefit the public because they enhance consumer information and protection in areas such as outlining in detail the responsibilities of a qualified supervisor and permit holder. In addition, the amendments and new rules contribute to the high level of professionalism maintained by the regulated community to the benefit of the public, thus increasing the public trust and confidence in the profession. The proposed amendments, repeals and new rules will have a positive social impact upon the regulated community because they clarify the varied aspects of practice for the benefit of all licensees, applicants for licensure and temporary permit holders. By delineating the accepted standards of marriage and family therapy practice, licensees and candidates for licensure are provided with a clear and comprehensive set of rules to guide them in their professional practice. Licensees will benefit with the assurance that uniform standards will be applied in the profession.

Economic Impact

The proposed amendments, repeals and new rules may result in a positive economic impact upon applicants eligible for licensure as a marriage and family therapist since applicants will now be required to complete three years of full-time counseling experience, rather than the current requirement of five years of full-time counseling. The repeal of N.J.A.C. 13:34-3.5 may have an economic impact upon temporary permit applicants since the Board will no longer issue temporary one year permits not requiring supervision. Applicants for a temporary permit must comply with the requirements for a three year permit, including a plan of supervision, which may limit the number of temporary permits and may limit the income an applicant can earn. The remaining amendments, repeals and new rules will not impose any new or additional costs upon licensees or permit holders.

Federal Standards Statement

A Federal standards analysis is not required because the amendments, repeals and new rules proposed are consistent with State statutes governing the professional practice of marriage and family therapy and there are no Federal standards or requirements applicable to the amendments, repeals and new rules.

Agriculture Industry Impact

The proposed amendments, repeals and new rules will have no impact on the agriculture industry.

Jobs Impact

The proposed amendments, repeals and new rules will enable the Board to continue to evaluate the credentials of applicants for licensure to practice marriage and family. The proposed new rules may affect the number of candidates applying for licensure since the new law provides that, to be eligible for licensure as a marriage and family therapist, an applicant must have three years of full-time counseling experience, rather than the current requirement of five years of full-time counseling experience. Although there is a decrease in the required number of years of full-time counseling experience, it is not anticipated that such a decrease will result in the generation or loss of jobs in the State.

Regulatory Flexibility Analysis

If, for purposes of the Act, the approximately 800 licensed marriage and family therapists are considered "small businesses" as that term is used in the Act, then the following analysis applies. The proposed amendments, repeals and new rules will impose reporting, recordkeeping, and compliance requirements upon licensees and permit holders. The proposed rules require that applicants for licensure as a marriage and family therapist document the completion of a minimum of two calendar years of supervised marriage and family therapy experience and one calendar year of counseling experience. Applicants for a three-year temporary permit must complete and submit to the Board an application form which will delineate the necessary requirements to obtain the temporary permit. These rules require applicants to comply with the regulations by keeping records and reporting to the Board the necessary criteria for licensure or permit holder status. In addition, the proposed rules impose reporting, recordkeeping and compliance requirements upon qualified supervisors and supervisees. Qualified supervisors must comply with the responsibilities outlined in N.J.A.C. 13:34-5.2 and they must attest to compliance with supervision requirements by using forms provided by the Board. Such documentation must be filed with the Board every six months for evaluation of the permit holder's progress. Permit holders must provide the Board with documentation of supervision every six months. Permit holders must comply with the regulations by not engaging in unsupervised practice and can only be compensated through the qualified supervisor or the employing entity. The Board does not anticipate further recordkeeping, reporting, or compliance requirements associated with the proposed rules and no professional services are necessary for the regulated community to comply. The Board has designed the proposed rules to further the health, welfare and safety of all persons who receive marriage and family therapy services; thus, the Board believes that the provisions must be applied uniformly to every practitioner in order to assure uniformity in the provision of marriage and family therapy services and no differing compliance standards based upon size have been provided. The amendments, repeals and new rules proposed minimize economic impact by imposing minimum level criteria for licensure. The rules proposed ensure that proficient individuals become licensed. In addition, they serve the best interests of the public by maintaining a high level of public trust and confidence in the profession. Because the rules proposed benefit the citizens of this State, they will apply uniformly to all members of the regulated community.

Smart Growth Impact

The Board does not believe that the proposed amendments, repeals and new rules will have any impact upon the achievement of smart growth or upon the implementation of the State Development and Redevelopment Plan.

Full text of the rules proposed for repeal may be found in the New Jersey Administrative Code at N.J.A.C. 13:34-3.4, 3.5, 3.6 and 4.2.

Marriage and family therapy is a specialized field of therapy which includes premarital counseling and therapy, pre- and post-divorce counseling and therapy, and family therapy that may be with couples, families or individuals.
