Thoughts on Board Certification 

Show More

“Distilling years of training and experience into a cohesive representation of who I am as a psychologist was both the most challenging and the most useful part of the certification process. Proceeding through the various stages of the certification process truly helped me develop a more integrated professional identity.”

"I completed this process largely for myself rather than for any potential professional or financial benefit. I’ve devoted my career to working with children and families, and saw obtaining ABPP certification as an important component to demonstrating this commitment."

"I found the process of board certification to be very interesting and rewarding. The process really reminded me of how important it is to take time to step back and really examine all of the factors impacting clients and helped me to see just how important it is to try and see the whole person and the variety of systems in a child’s life that influence presenting problems."
