Book Description

June 1 2009 0195372433 978-0195372434 1
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.

Review


"In summary, this is a well-crafted guidebook for anyone considering the process of becoming board certified. This resource is something that could have been used by thousands of applicants over the past 50 years who might have benefited from the excellent knowledge about the process of becoming board certified. I, for one, wish that this book had been available years ago when I was preparing for my boards. In my opinion, this comprehensive guidebook is a must-read for anyone considering the pursuit of certification with ABPP. It is sure to answer all of the questions of even the most reluctant and inquisitive applicants. This brief, 174 page text is well-written in a concise and enjoyable fashion. The editors and authors are to be thoroughly commended for doing an outstanding job."--Frank M. Dattilio, Ph.D., ABPP, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, in Journal of Forensic Psychology


"This excellent book does a good job of taking readers through the certification process. The authors encourage competent psychologists to become board certified in order to inspire more confidence in the general public. They also note this will help enhance employment opportunities and financial compensation."--Doody's

So far it's been really great, covers even how you may psych yourself out of a good set of interviews.
3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but not worth the money Sept. 8 2013

I'm a psychologist pursuing Board Certification and was looking for a book that I could study to help prepare for the oral Exam. I thought I'd give his a try. I was kind of disappointed with it. It focuses more on the history of board certification, advantages of board certification, and gives some advice on how to go through the separate processes of applying for board certification. It is NOT a study guide and focuses more on navigating you through the procedures. It's also on the thin side, at 170 pages. It was ok, but I can't say that I would recommend it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended to pass board certification Sept. 23 2012

I recently obtained my board certification with the American Board of Professional Psychology and I am very grateful to the editors of this book for their recommendations. I found their chapters very informative and the practical ideas for improving the work sample and all of the components of the certification process very helpful. Most importantly, their detailed description of the history of certification and how the process has evolved increased my appreciation for the importance of certification. The explanation on the oral examination provided me with the necessary tools for optimal preparation. As a busy professional, I needed a resource that would give me both practical advice and sufficient background information to thoroughly know what certification entails. This is a definitive must for anyone seeking board certification.
