If you are looking for a clinical neuropsychologist in Massachusetts, it’s important to understand the training standards for neuropsychologists before choosing one. All neuropsychologists are psychologists, but very few psychologists are also neuropsychologists. Neuropsychology is a specialty area of Clinical Psychology, requiring extensive additional training above and beyond basic psychology training.
CPA was founded by a Clinical Neuropsychologist and has grown to become a preeminent center for exceptional neuropsychological services. What makes CPA’s neuropsychologists unique is their education and training backgrounds. CPA only hires neuropsychologists that meet the highest standards of education and training in neuropsychology. These standards, created by the professional bodies in neuropsychology and the Houston Conference, call for specific knowledge of clinical neuropsychology, neuroanatomy, and brain-behavior relationships; completion of an APA-approved internship in neuropsychology; and, completion of a specialty post-doctoral residency in clinical neuropsychology.
Importantly, the highest standard for indicating professional competence to practice clinical neuropsychology is board-certification. Board-certification involves a thorough evaluation of a neuropsychologists training, skill and knowledge by a group of peers. For neuropsychology, the primary certifying organization is the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP).
CPA only employs neuropsychologists who meet the highest training standards and we are proud to employ several neuropsychologists who have achieved ABPP board-certification in Clinical Neuropsychology.
