Course Description:

Attention Florida Psychologists and School Psychologists! This course fulfills part of the requirements for license renewal.
The Florida Board of Psychology has determined that as a condition of licensure renewal, each licensee must complete a 3 credit course on the Florida Statutes and Rules and ethics. This course is specifically designed to satify that requirement. This course is based upon two source documents. The first part of this course is a review of Florida Statute Chapter 490 and Florida Administrative Code Rule 64B19. This course contains the most current laws and rules – 2007; which establish the legal guidelines for the practice of psychology in the state of Florida. If you are a currently a psychologist or school psychologists, you previously took an exam as a requirement for licensure. This course is an opportunity to review the laws and rules that regulate the practice of psychology in the State of Florida.
The second part of this course is a review of the American Psychological Association, APA, Code of Conduct. Updated in 2002, this Ethics Code applies to psychologists’ activities that are part of their scientific, educational and professional roles as psychologist.  Remember the core ethical principals and standards of practice for psychology. You probably have not reviewed the Code of Ethics since graduate school. Read the APA’s Code of Ethics for a review of the foundations of our field. This course will remind you of the core principles that should guide all clinical practice, regardless of setting and client population. It is targeted for beginner, intermediate and advanced psychologists. It is also appropriate for mental health professionals from other disciplines who work in multidisciplinary teams or who are interested in another perspective on ethics.
Learning Objectives: This course will provide a professional with a review of the Florida Statutes and Rules affecting the practice of psychology and the code of ethics for psychologists. Specifically, a professional will able to:

  • Recognize key elements of Florida Statute Chapter 490.
  • Identify specifics of Florida Administrative Code Rule 64B19

Summarize the ethical standards to which psychologists’ work must adhere
