    No link but it was posted on a listserv. Since APPIC recently restricted the match to APA/CPA programs only and the VA has recently approved PCSAS accreditation, there wasn't a mechanism to allow VAs to recruit PCSAS accredited programs for internship. A two match system was proposed but APPIC recently approved changes that now include APA, CPA, and PCSAS accreditation.

    Seems like another victory for PCSAS. At this point, state licensure appears to be the last barrier.

    I would consider any competition/alternative to APA to be a good thing for the field, especially one based on clinical psychological science (our roots as a profession and our core mission) rather than one based on ideological activism. Obviously there is a diversity of opinions on this and that's why we have APA.

    If only they would allow counseling programs in PCSAS.
