The American Board of Professional Psychology Certification Process

21 Jan

As a private practice psychologist in Augusta, GA, Dr. Joseph Frey provides clients with services such as psychological assessments, family therapy, and forensic consultation. He earned his PhD in clinical psychology with a focus on the family from Georgia State University. A member of the American Psychological Association, Dr. Joseph Frey also holds board certification from the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP).

The American Board of Professional Psychology offers board certification to guarantee the professional services offered by psychologists. The process to receive certification begins with a credentials review, followed by peer review of practice samples, and then an oral examination conducted by board-certified psychologists. Some boards in specific areas, such as forensic psychology and clinical neuropsychology, require a written examination in addition.

For more information about the application process, visit ABPP’s website at www.abpp.org. The site includes further details on each step of the process and on the different options, such as the Early Entry Program and the Senior Option in Examinations, as well as an infographic of the process.
