American Psychological Association (APA) Resolution, January 1987


The APA takes the position that the use of the title "professional psychologist" or "school psychologist" is reserved for those who have completed a doctoral training program in psychology at a university, college, or professional school of psychology that is APA or regionally accredited. Only those so-trained are qualified to provide independent direct delivery of professional services, including preventive, assessment, and therapeutic services.

The APA also recommends that all applicants for licensure, as a minimum, must be graduates of a regionally accredited institution of higher education and must have completed a doctoral training program accredited by the APA.
