Need for the Document[edit]

Following is a procedure on how to apply for the issuance of Professional Identification Card (ID) and Certificate of Registration for Psychologists.



Information which might help[edit]

Following are areas covered by the practice of psychology: clinical psychology, counseling psychology, assessment psychology; social psychology; developmental psychology, cognitive psychology and industrial/organizational psychology. There is no distinction made in the legislation or in the regulation between Psychologists across these specialties at this point. Within these areas a Psychologist may work with a variety of individual client populations such as children, adolescents, or adults, or may focus their attention on families, couples or organizations. But the ethics of the profession dictates that no psychologist should cross over areas he/she is not equipped to handle, thus the certification in various specialty areas. All professional psychologists, however, regardless of specialty must have knowledge and skills respecting interpersonal relationships, assessment and evaluation, intervention and consultation, understanding and applying research to professional practice and knowing and applying professional ethics, standards and relevant legislation to professional practice.

Licensure is on two levels: for those with at least a Masters Degree in Psychology who can be called a Psychologist; and those with at least a Bachelors degree in Psychology who can work under the supervision of a psychologist, called a psychometrician.

A Psychologist as defined by law, is a natural person who is duly registered and holds a valid Certificate of Registration and a valid Professional Identification Card as Professional Psychologist, issued by the Professional Regulatory Board of Psychology (PRBP) and the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) pursuant to Section 3(c), Article III, of R.A. No. 10029, for the purpose of delivering the different psychological services defined under the IRR.



Other uses of the Document/Certificate[edit]

Please explain what are other uses of obtaining this document/certificate.
