On September 17, 2021, the Executive Council published adopted rules concerning 22 TAC Chapters 881, 882, and 885 in the September 17, 2021, Texas Register [46 TexReg 6262].

Updated Consolidated Rulebooks will soon be available on the Executive Council’s Statutes and Rules webpage.

Beginning 9/1/20, the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) entity that has been running the LMFT licensing board was taken over by the Texas Behavioral Health Executive Council (BHEC). BHEC now oversees the licensing boards for LMFT, LPC, LCSW, & Psychologists.

There are 3 big changes we want to bring to your attention:

  1. Starting 9/1/20, all licensees are required to renew licenses online through the Texas BHEC website:
  2. Effective 9/1/20, all licensees are required to have a continuing education course on human trafficking prevention before renewal: "The 86th Texas Legislature introduced Texas Occupations Code, Chapter 116, Training Course on Human Trafficking Prevention, which requires a health care practitioner, such as an LMFT or LMFT Associate to successfully complete an HHSC-approved Human Trafficking Prevention training course as a condition for renewal of a license on or after September 1, 2020. Information about approved courses are available on HHSC’s Health Care Practitioner Human Trafficking Training webpage."
  3. Beginning 3/31/21, all licensees are required to undergo a fingerprinting process in order to renew our license: "Beginning with LPC, LMFT, and Social Work licensees with expiration dates of March 31, 2021, per Council rule 882.40(c), LPC, LMFT, and Social Work licensees must undergo a fingerprint based criminal history check as a condition of renewal. The instructions and forms needed to undergo a fingerprint based criminal history check will be made available on the Council’s Forms and Publications web page."
