Intern registration number tips

Did you know that if your first intern registration number only lasts for 6 years? In fact, many interns overlook that their intern registration is completely expiring- because the Board of Behavioral Sciences may not send you an intern number renewal. Why? Because you will be required to apply for a completely new intern number (don’t worry the process is a bit shorter).

In addition, if you get a second intern number you are NOT eligible to work in private practice. I have now had to deliver the bad news to multiple interns that they were working illegally in private practice due to overlooking this rule. Be sure to keep any eye on that clock!

TrackYourHours has a new look

Today we went live with a refresh of our website.  The main page has been completely redesigned.  The dashboard has been expanded to provide a better user experience; it now includes weeks of supervision, a listing of your alerts and our Twitter and Facebook feeds.  A support tab that hovers on the left side of every page allows you to quickly search our Knowledge Base and submit support requests.  This is the last update we needed to implement in order to prepare for the next big update…mobile access!   Continue reading

I totaled the hours on my Summary Report and the total is different than my recorded/valid total; why? (California MFT)

Users will occasionally sum all of the hours on the Summary Report on the Reports & Forms tab and compare that total to the Valid total reported by TYH.  You cannot sum the hours on the Summary Report because it includes categories that duplicate hours.  For example, the non-counseling experience category is listed on the Summary Report because it is important for you to monitor the hours logged versus the category maximum.  Hours in this category are listed in other sub-categories on the summary page so if you sum everything on the page you will double count these hours (from January 1, 2012 forward NCE includes workshops and training, personal psychotherapy received, individual supervision, and group supervision).   Continue reading
