List of credentials in psychology

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_credentials_in_psychology

Associates degrees

Associate of Art (AA) or Associate of Science (AS): Associates degrees are usually two-year degrees and are often offered at community colleges. Many choose to start with Associate degrees in counseling psychology, clinical psychology, or related fields, before starting work on degrees which require further education. An Associate degree is usually not required in order to enroll in a Bachelor's degree program.

Bachelors degrees

Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) - 4 years of college/university, clinical coursework in Social Work, Guidance, Counseling, Psychotherapy, Human Services, Psychology, others, and extensive internship experience including counseling/therapy required. Assessment, diagnosis,and treatment are part of the curriculum.
Bachelor of Arts (BA), Bachelor of Science (BS), Bachelor of Social Work (BSW): Bachelors degrees usually require four years of study and are required prior to entry into graduate programs where Masters or Doctoral degrees may be earned. Although a person may earn a Bachelors degree in counseling psychology, clinical psychology or related fields in mental health, a person may have had a major concentration in another field of study and still qualify for entry into a graduate school for study in the area of psychology. A bachelors degree does not meet the requirements for clinical practice or licensure.

Masters degrees

Master of Social Work (MSW) - See BSW above also. 6 years of college/university, clinical coursework in Social Work, Guidance, Counseling, Psychotherapy, Human Services, Psychology, others, and extensive practicum experience including counseling/therapy required.

Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) – requires the student to create relevant and helpful research that contributes to the existing body of knowledge or scholarship in an area.

To use the title "psychologist", individuals must meet their state requirements and obtain a license to practice psychology.
Doctor of Philosophy (PhD): A Doctor of Philosophy degree in psychology prepares the student to conduct independent research and to provide professional services (consultation, assessment, diagnosis, therapy).

LEGAL

Emily J. - Lawsuit which challenged the conditions of confinement in the Juvenile Detention Centers operated by the defendant officials of the State of Connecticut and the state's treatment of those children confined in those facilities.

Juan F. - Consent decree which resulted from a federal class action suit filed against the Department of Children and Youth Services, now the Department of Children and Families (DCF). The suit broadly challenged the department’s management, policies, practices, operations, funding, and protocols concerning abused and neglected children in its custody and those who might come into its custody.

W.R. - Lawsuit that was filed by several plaintiffs (youths in DCF’s care and/or their parents) who claimed that the DCF discriminated against them on the basis of their mental illness and that they were harmed by DCF’s failure to put into place policies and procedures to make sure that mentally ill youth in the care of DCF had placements available to them which would help them to live in the community.
