Benefits of ABAPsa Membership

Specialty board certification in psychoanalysis through the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) is the highest level of certification for psychologist-psychoanalysts.  It is also the only certification recognized by the American Psychological Association's Commission for the Recognition of Specialties and Proficiencies in Professional Psychology (CRSPPP).  It embodies the highest standards for psychoanalytic practice and for the maintenance of certification through continuing education, training, and research.


  • Board certification is fast becoming a requirement for faculty and training analyst positions due to changes in institute accreditation requirements.
  • ABPP certification enhances licensure mobility for psychologists in most states
  • Board certification is recognized and accepted by the Court as well as by health insurers and, increasingly, by the public as confirmation of expertise.
