About Licensure

The licensure of all practicing psychologists and counsellors has been approved and mandated by the Council of Professions Allied to Medicine (CPAM) (formerly called the Council of Professions Supplementary to Medicine). The Council adjudicates all matters related to licensure as a practicing professional, ethical issues/concerns and will also approve and monitor continuing education units (CEUs).

JamPsych was approved by the Council to represent psychologists and counsellors and the JamPsych President was elected, by our Executive Board, to sit on the Council. Other professions governed by CPAM include nutritionists, dieticians, audiologists, medical technologists, chiropodists and physiotherapists, to name a few. The Council members meet once per month.
 

Licensure will be offered in 5 categories:

  1. Clinical

  2. Counseling

  3. Applied-Social

  4. Educational or School Psychologist

  5. Professional Counselor

 

Within each category, psychologists and counsellors may be licensed at the Masters or Doctoral levels. Certification will also include a notation regarding the qualification for conducting psychological assessments. Please see our Scope of Practice for specific details of this.

Please remember to date and sign the end of the infamous conduct guidelines when submitting your application for licensure.
