POLICY AND ADVOCACY COMMITTEE MEETING NOTICE AND AGENDA

Monday, April 27

 

http://www.psychology.ca.gov/about_us/meetings/agendas/20150427.shtml

 

Report on status of Bills related to practice of psychology were reviewed.

 

One of the bills is AB 1374 Levine

 

Part of this bill involves removal of the "fee” for services language from the definition of the practice of psychology. The rational for this change is to provide consumer protection and clarification that all the services rendered by a psychologist whether for a fee or pro bono are considered the practice of psychology and fall under the Board of Psychology standards. 

 

 Recommendations to Full Board Continuing Education Requirements

Discussion and Review of Comments Received During the 15 -Day Notice Period

 

This matter is to be addressed by the full Board in May. Copies of the public comments will be available to the public at the Board meeting.

 

671 Comments regarding change from 18 to 27 hours of CE permitted

622 were negative and requested change to 36 units

 32 were not relevant

16 were supportive of the change

  1 proposed change to 30 units

 

Themes in comments:

Not understanding why is it happening.

Challenge to the validity of the change to CPD.

Described hardships in ability to earn CPD.

General support of CPD but firm and strident opposition to reduction of traditional CE hours from 36.

 

Committee recommend that the Board review the public comments and provide clarification of the public comments and concerns at the next Board meeting in May 14-15, 2015.
