The American Board of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology (ABCCAP) continues to have great growth in the number of psychologists achieving board certification, with the most recent board-certified professionals from fall and early winter including:
  • Mysa Akbar
  • Heather Crabtree
  • Sara Hoffenberg
  • Rebecca Johnson
  • Stephon Proctor
  • Patrick Reilly
  • Lawrence Rubin
There are many board certification professional benefits, such as those offered through ABPP. For more information, visit ABCCAP online or American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) online or send an email.
In the coming year, workshops and exams will be held at several national meetings, including the Society of Pediatric Psychology Annual Conference in Philadelphia in March and the National Conference in Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology (NCCCAP), sponsored by Div. 53 (Society of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology), in Lawrence, Kan., in October.
In addition, we routinely arrange for exams to be conducted within regions to make travel as convenient as possible for candidates. We have developed pods of examiners in several locations across the country, including Florida; South Carolina; the Northeast Corridor; Ohio; Kansas City/Lawrence, Kan.; Minneapolis; and Seattle. We are actively working to develop examination pods in other regions of the country.
If you currently hold ABCCAP certification, plan to attend an examiner training workshop at the NCCCAP in October. Please contact me.
