About Us

The American Board of Counseling Psychology and the American Academy of Counseling Psychology share the mission of helping all psychologists who function within the Specialty of Counseling Psychology to become board certified as counseling psychologists under the standards established by the American Board of Professional Psychology.  This mission has two core components – credentialing and advocacy. The American Board of Counseling Psychology fulfills the credentialing component of the mission, and the American Academy of Counseling Psychology fulfills the advocacy component.  Elsewhere on this website is an extended description of both components.
