Global Promise: Quality Assurance and Accountability in Professional Psychology

George Stricker

Oxford University Press

It seems the world of psychology is divided. Policies and implementations of professional psychology education, training, and practice differ in various regions of the globe, and qualifications for psychologists vary by country. This limits international mobility, unless the standards of one country can adapt to another country's standards. The need for doctoral training, the need for the appropriate degree to be awarded, the characteristics of a good training program and internship, the requirements for licensure, the form and value of continuing education, and the impact of relicensing procedures are just among the few issues that can be empirically scrutinized. It is imperative to address these issues and have a rational procedure, self-regulation, and attention given to the public. This chapter discusses the development stages of professional psychologists, particularly in America and in Canada, from professional training to internship, postdoctoral experience to licensure; each discussion here contains a summary of programs, training approaches, accreditation, and quality assurance.

Keywords:   qualifications, international mobility, standards, doctoral training, internship, licensure, relicensing procedures, accreditation
