About the Course
The Florida Statutes are state laws that are arranged by titles, chapters, parts, and sections. They are considered permanent but are reviewed and updated annually and may be amended, altered, or repealed. The professions and practices of social work, mental health counseling, and marriage and family therapy are addressed in numerous Florida laws, and many updates to the laws involve the inclusion of social workers, mental health counselors, and marriage and family therapists for implementation. This situation mirrors aspects of the Affordable Care Act, which defines the important role of these professions in Accountable Care Organizations, and the HEARTH Act Continuum of Care.
