Board Certification in Counseling Psychology
Crowley, Susan L.; Lichtenberg, James W.; Pollard, Jeffrey W.
Counseling Psychologist, v40 n6 p944-958 Aug 2012
Although specialty board certification by the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) has been a valued standard for decades, the vast majority of counseling psychologists do not pursue board certification in the specialty. The present article provides a brief history of board certification in general and some historical information about the history of board certification in counseling psychology specifically. In addition, information about the examination process and some of the advantages of board certification for individuals as well as for the field of counseling psychology are provided. It is the authors' hope that the information provided will invite counseling psychologists across settings to (re)consider becoming board certified. (Contains 1 note.)
