The Psychology Board of Australia has reviewed and made some minor amendments to its Policy on working in addition to placements and the revised policy is effective from 1 September 2015.
The revised policy is available on the Codes, guidelines and policies page of the website.
The policy allows registered provisional psychologists to apply for Board approval to undertake psychological practice and use the title ‘Provisional Psychologist’ in positions that do not contribute to the requirements of their accredited degree.
The changes to the policy include:
Corresponding amendments and some further improvements have been made to the Application for working in addition to university placements for provisional psychologists - AWOP-76 and the Progress report form for provisional psychologists working in addition to university placements - PPSR-76.
Additionally some amendments have been made to the Application to act as a Board-approved supervisor of provisional psychologists and registrars - ABAS-76 which include confirmation of the registration requirement to be eligible as a work in additional to placements supervisor (general registration has been held for at least two years).
The revised forms are available on the Forms page of the website.
