     NCMHCE Exam Format:
    The NCMHCE exam is a computerized exam.  Items on the National Clinical Mental Health Counselor Examination (NCMHCE) are designed to sample a broad area of competencies, rather than recall isolated facts. Therefore, the items assess clinical problem solving ability, including identifying, analyzing, diagnosis, and treating clients through the use of effective treatment planning principles.  The exam consists of ten clinical mental health counseling cases. Each case is divided into 5-8 sections classified as either information-gathering or decision-making.
    Presenter:
    Dr. Fran Giordano, LCPC, has extensive experience conducting training workshops for counselors.  In 1998, she received the Counselor Educator of  the Year Award from the American Mental Health Counselors Association and she also received the Counselor Educator of the Year Award from the Illinois Counselor Educators and Supervisors in 2006. She is the President of the Illinois Counseling Association. She is also a Past-President of IMHCA and a past member of the State of Illinois Counselor Licensure Board.  She is the 2002 recipient of the IMHCA Distinguished Service as an Illinois Mental Health Counselor Award.  She has been presenting test preparation workshops for the NCMHCE exam for eleven years.
