The ABPP confers board certification upon recommendation by the relevant Specialty Board. As such, the “ABPP” certificate itself indicates the particular specialty. In order to represent oneself as board certified by ABPP, the specialist must provide an annual attestation indicating continued adherence to ABPP standards as well pay the associated attestation fee.
This directory lists all current ABPP board certified psychologists. If a name does not appear, that individual 1) is either not board certified through ABPP or (2) has not maintained the above requirements. It is possible that an individual has overlooked providing the attestation and fee; if an individual claims to be ABPP board certified and is not listed in this directory, it is appropriate to contact ABPP at email@example.com. ABPP will follow up with that individual.
Some individuals and/or organizations request more information than is provided by this search, or may require written verification of board certification status.
