Title of "Health Service Provider"
A Health Service Provider in psychology is a licensed/certified psychologist, at the independent practice level in his/her state, province, territory, or country, who is trained and experienced in the delivery of prevention, consultation, assessment, and treatment (rev. 2010).
The mission of the National Register is to credential psychologists, promote credentialed psychologists to consumers, provide distinction and value to its members, guide psychology students toward credentialing, enhance psychologists’ contributions to integrated healthcare, and facilitate identification of qualified psychologists in a global community.
Members of the National Register enjoy:
National Register Recognized Credentials
The National Register recognizes the American Board of Professional Neuropsychology (ABN), American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP), and the APA College of Professional Psychology.
Board of Directors
The nine-member Board of Directors, two of whom are non-psychologist public representatives, governs the National Register. Board members are solicited from among the Registrant population and elsewhere and are elected by the Board for a four-year term and are eligible to reapply for a second term. Each year, all Board members sign a confidentiality agreement that includes a conflict of interest agreement. In addition, the National Register has written policies of whistleblower protection and document retention.
Committee on Professional Practice and Ethics (COPPE)
The National Register does not initiate or independently investigate complaints against Registrants; rather, any action by the COPPE is based upon documentation received from the investigation and adjudication of outside organizations, such as state/provincial psychology boards and associations, governmental bodies, and courts. Only when a question is raised concerning the possibility of "any significant misrepresentation in connection with his/her application for listing" does the National Register conduct its own investigation.
