4410; Thanks for those examples - good illustration of the many scenerios that can happen.
Yes, my state has exempt setting as well whereby non licensed Ph.D. 's can call themselves Psychologists; university settings, hospitals etc.
These LPC's are aware that they cannot call themselves a Psychologists and they never would be advertised that way in the practice.
I cannot even imgaine the debates going on in the medical community regarding Nurses with Doctorates wanting to be called Dr. in hospital settings. Now THAT would be confusing to the patient. How would they introduce themselves? "Hello I'm Dr. so and so your Nurse"...
