State licensure is your assurance that you are dealing with a professional who has met rigorous standards of education, training, and experience, and who remains current in their field of practice. In the United States psychologists must be licensed by their state psychology board if they wish to practice as an independent professional. The professional practice of psychology is regulated by each state's board of psychology. Licensure is a highly rigorous process that ensures that practicing independent psychologists met the highest standards of education, training, and experience. In Florida psychologists must graduate from an accredited doctoral program recognized by the American Psychological Association, must complete a psychology internship of 2,000 hours (a full year), receive an additional 2,000 hours (another full year) of experience under the supervision of a licensed psychologist, pass the comprehensive Examination For Professional Practice In Psychology (the national psychology examination), and pass the Florida Laws and Rules Examination. In addition, psychologists are required to stay current in the field by attending forty hours of continuing education every two years for as long as they continue to practice. Throughout their career, a psychologist in Florida is required to uphold the very stringent rules and laws of The Florida Board of Psychology, a division of the Florida Department of Health.
