Survey of Philippine Psychologists and Psychometricians.

 

The PAP is gathering information on psychologists and psychometricians who are practicing in the Philippines as part of its efforts to expedite the passage of our Psychology Bill. The PAP was asked by the sponsor of the Psychology Bill in the Philippine Congress and the Philippine Regulation Commission to come up with the list of Psychologists (with at least MA or MS in Psychology) in the Philippines and a list of Psychometricians (with at least a BS Psychology degree). The list is particularly important as the PAP would like to protect professional psychologists and psychometricians who may be adversely affected by the current IRR of the Guidance and Counseling Act.

 

Please download the PAP survey form and forward it to the Psychological Association of the Philippines using its email address: pap_1962@yahoo.com or its fax facility: 02-453-8257. 

We also encouraged and appreciate it if this information together with the survey form be forwarded to all concerned.

    From the mail:

    I, Fr. Arsenio “Arsie” A. Lumiqued, Jr., MSC is a faculty member and counselor at the Center for Family Ministries, Loyola School of Theology, Ateneo de Manila University. At CeFaM, we are doing Pre-Marital, Marital and Family Counseling/Therapy. The Guidance and Counseling Bill has terribly hit our practice. Our MA graduates in Pastoral Ministries major in Marital and Family Counseling cannot get a license to practice counseling until they finish additional 15 units in guidance and counseling. There is a distinction between Pastoral Marital and Family Counseling and Guidance & Counseling. But the said guidance and counseling bill also included our field–Pastoral Counseling.

    The dust from the said bill has not yet settled and there’s another bill being spear-headed by your professional association. We hope that you would consider our field. . .

    I am practicing as psychometrician and a guidance counselor in our university. I have completed my MA Psychology a year ago. However, I am more interested to get a professional license in line with Psychology.. Thus, I am hoping that the Psychology Bill be approved soon with the effort of the Psychological Association of the Philippines.

    hi! i hope you can also get comments or hear from the Psychologists of the Armed Forces of the Philippines… i am not speaking on their behalf, but i also feel for them… most of them are in the practice for years and are deeply affected by these bills…

    the restricions of the psychology bill of who will be admitted in the examination and those who will be licensed without examination seem to be onerous on your part. there are a lot of practicing clinical psychologists whose periods of experience had qualified and made them so. MS in psychology or doctorate in psychology is not a common course offered in universities especially in the provinces. why dont you allow or include those who have master’s or doctorate degrees that are also related to psychology and not stiffly MA or PhD in Psychology. if youe going to pushe through this bill, a lot of practicing psychologists will be affected. NOW, would you take the challenge and responsibility in treating people in far flung provinces just in case? hope that you would take this bill seriously for the benefit of the recipients of psychological services and not to promote one’s own profession and name.

    Greetings!
    I would like to join the PAP. I have already submitted my application and am waiting for your office’s response. I do hope you consider my application. I also would like to ask if it would be possible for Psychologists acting as Guidance Counselors to also take the Licensure for Guidance? However… it would be beneficial for us Psychologists, practicing or not, to have our own Professionalism. An would it be better if we lessen the requirements for the board so as to accommodate more psychologists.
    Hope to hear from you.

    Respectfully,
    Mr. Ramon Quinagon III

    Hi!

    I’ve heard that the license exam for Psychology Major Graduates will be on August 19, 2009, is it true? What is the process for this? And who’s in charge?

    Will appreciate your response.

    Thanks.

    I am curious about why there are board of directors in PAP who are at the same time Board of Directors of PGCA. If we want PAP to be a strong organization, we should not vote for these people whose loyalty to our organization is questionable. I hope that the new PAP president is knowledgeable about this. The PGCA Law truly hurts the profession of psychologists in this country.
