Course Overview:
More than 50 % of first-time married couples divorce. More than 60% of couples in the United States who marry a second time divorce. This pandemic effects millions of couples and even more children. Though less than 25% of divorcing couples are considered high conflict, most divorcing couples can benefit from guidance that is readily available to them. There is now a cottage industry of divorce professionals whose goal is to help folks divorce in the most healthy way possible. 

(Additionally, with training, psychologists can play some of these roles (not for their own therapy clients of course!).

APA Appoints Task Force To Study Accrediting Master's Programs

Posted: August 13, 2018

Group to make recommendations to governing Council of Representatives

The American Psychological Association has appointed a task force to develop a blueprint for the association to accredit master’s programs in health service psychology.

“Given the increasing number of states that are licensing psychology providers at the master’s level, the association decided it makes sense for APA to create a roadmap to add master’s programs to its accreditation portfolio,” said James Lichtenberg, PhD, professor emeritus in counseling psychology at the University of Kansas. “APA has long been the recognized leader in accrediting doctoral programs in psychology so it makes sense for the association to apply its expertise to master’s-level programs.”
