Psychological Examiners Rules Change:
The Board of Psychological Examiners amended the administrative rules that relate to psychology licensure. In cooperation with the Licensure Board, the Vermont Psychological Association successfully made important contributions to the revision process. Thank you to all who helped VPA make a difference for our profession. Here is the link to the rules for psychology licensure (after you click the link, look on the right side of the page).
Please be sure to pay particular attention to Section 4 addressing "Supervision".
