With increasing technological advancements and the trend towards globalization, how can separate psychology professions interconnect, given the fact that they have different cultures, professional training and education, and policies? How can international mobility be possible with the issues surrounding their accountability? The challenge is to devise collaborated list of agreements and policies (mechanisms of accountability) concerning cultural and ethical negotiations, training and education equivalences, and internship requirements across borders that sufficiently accommodates various standards for education, training, and regulations of professional psychology. Although the future has yet to reveal a universal educational standard and regulatory standard, discussions for international mobility are already underway. The current situation in North America, Europe, and Asia provides a foundation for achieving this goal of connecting and sharing expertise.

Keywords:   cultures, professional training, international mobility, mechanisms of accountability, education equivalences, professional psychology, globalization
