In a word…yes. 500 years is a long time. 500 years ago Columbus had just barely sailed the ocean blue.
Five hundred years ago, there was a dancing plague in Strasbourg in which many people died from constant dancing (bet they could have used some couples therapy).
And back then, Leonardo DaVinci was still alive… and was much more interesting than Leonardo Di Caprio is today.
So here’s our proof. For USA therapists, we count the years of Clinical experience from the date of their Master’s Degree (not their Bachelor’s… that would be cheating).
