Interesting thread...I am sad I missed it on the first go round last year. I think a lot of the points mentioned are still salient and while the in-fighting may stop, there is a lot of work to be done. For starters, board certification is really needed throughout psychology. As mentioned above, outside of academic centers and the VA, it is the wild west out there. Without that, poorly trained/unethical psychologists are as much of a worry as encroachment from other professions. The issue I see before hand is not that neuropsychology does not have a place in the science. Rather, as a health professional, what kind of bread and butter case can a neuropsychologist expect in changing times? Everyone from SLPs to Rehab psychologists,School psychologists, etc will be encroaching on the territory. I spent a good deal of time learning assessment and while I do not consider myself a neuropsychologist (no npsych post-doc), I can certainly administer an RBANS or Cognistat and screen for dementia. I can also do a capacity/risk assessment, etc. So, does that leave neuropsych as specialists that only see those that pass a screening or will neuropsych be in a turf war with other psychologists regarding who gets to do these screeners? The bottom line is that in any area of practice, there needs to be a steady niche to pratice in and the lack oversight legally and within the field is causing problems as everyone runs to the few areas that make money and a glut forms.
