For the past 60 years, the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) has been the premier credentialing agency for psychologists. ABPP is increasingly recognized as a highly valuable standard of specialty competency through the board certification process. For specialty recognition, some jurisdictions require ABPP certification, with more states getting involved each year. Additionally, there is increasing recognition of the importance of the ABPP credential by employers such as hospitals and health service systems, and organizations such as the US Public Health Service, the US Department of Defense, and the Department of Veteran Affairs. This edited book provides a comprehensive description and hands-on, practical guide for individuals seeking certification from any one of the 13 specialty boards of the American Board of Professional Psychology. The book contains answers to frequent areas of inquiry and questions posed by potential candidates. In addition to providing a brief description of the history and mission of ABPP, the book offers step-by-step information concerning the "where, what, and how" of the board certification process. Finally, never-before offered information is provided, such as what pitfalls to avoid, and how to get further involved in the profession as a board certified psychologist.
