APA Telepsychology Guidelines

The APA Council of Representatives approved new Guidelines for the Practice of Telepsychology as of July 2013. These guidelines were the result of a Joint Task Force on the Development of Telepsychology Guidelines for Psychologists, made up of members representing APA, the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards and the American Psychological Association Insurance Trust (APAIT). The guidelines are available for download here in PDF.

Telepsychology 50 State Review

According to APA, a growing number of states have passed or updated laws or rules governing telepsychology practice in the last few years. These rules and laws address both delivery of and payment for telepsychology services. 

The APA Practice Directorate’s Office of Legal & Regulatory Affairs has updated the Telepsychology 50-state review to guide psychologists in navigating the regulations and provisions in their state.  These are available here in PDF as well as on the APA website

Be one of APA’s ‘go-to’ experts for national news media
Public Affairs’ media referral service provides journalists with sources for a broad range of psychology topics. Just about any topic covered in the news — from New Year’s resolutions to violence in schools — has a psychological component. The APA Office of Public Affairs’ media referral service connects journalists to psychologists with expertise that relates to the issue they’re covering.

APA members are eligible to be MRS experts and become active participants in the association’s ongoing efforts to raise public awareness and understanding of psychology and its critical role in all aspects of people’s lives. We recommend members do interviews on topics within their particular area of expertise and that those volunteering for the referral service avail themselves of a media training program. APA offers such programs, as do many university relations offices.

The form found at this link http://www.apa.org/news/press/mrs.pdf will allow you to list your areas of expertise and your preferred contact information, and will give the Public Affairs team permission to provide that information when making referrals to journalists who report for recognized news outlets around the world.
