Re: 2010 Senate Bill 1315 (Revise psychology degree program accreditation ) by maddys on July 17, 2012 Unfortunately biased decisions are everywhere inside our political system, in fact I don't think there is such a thing in the whole world as a perfect political system. I am however concerned about these decisions are made, they should be validated by another authority in order to increase the accuracy. I am also studying for my master's fegree in psychology and I hope by the time I'll get to do my job things will be different.
Re: 2010 Senate Bill 1315 (Revise psychology degree program accreditation ) by cynitra on May 7, 2012 I totally agree with the above state written here. My case in Oakland County Circuit Court became a mess because a judge relying on a "Limited License Psychologist" who misdiagnose me in my case to justify the verdict that she gave prior to the psychological evaluation. I am studying psychology, and I will be getting my counseling psychology degree from a well known accredited University.
Re: 2010 Senate Bill 1315 (Revise psychology degree program accreditation ) by kennysmith on March 16, 2012 If I understand correctly the law is meant to protect the public health sector by ensuring that the ones practicing psychology have completed accredited education institutions. I am an masters in public administration graduate and I really think the law is fair and it is protecting the patient. Anyways, those who attend any higher education program should check the validity of their studies before choosing any program, just in case they are not accredited.
