If the APA doesn't make accreditation more cost effective, faster, and more efficient, I'm sure they'll have a lot of resistance to their proposal to require doctoral and internship accreditation for licensing.
this is where APA should also work on. Not to lower the standards but maybe give discounts or help in funding internhip positions. In the CMH world getting funded is hard to come by so they have to make a decision whether that money should be allocated to students or other things.
I wonder though, maybe APA don't necessarily listen to our grouses because most of the leaders in APA are so out of touch with the students.
