I have done some reading recently about seeking ABPP certification for a specific specialty (in my case, counseling psychology). I am a long time from making this decision (starting doc program in fall 2008) but I am unsure as to how valuable this certification really is. I can see how it could be valuable for a specialty like clinical neuropsychology but I don't see how it is valuable for my specialty. My understanding is that it is very difficult for psychologists to attain this credential and it does speak to a certain level of expertise if it is attained. I was just wondering if anyone else had heard any of your mentors or faculty speak on this and if it was helpful their careers in any way. Thanks for your help.
