California Association of School Psychologists



 

Code of Ethics


As the stakeholder representing Licensed Educational Psychologists before the Board of Behavioral Sciences, CASP has developed a Code of Ethics for LEPs. Approved by the CASP Board of Directors during its October 2015 meeting, the LEP Ethics Code goes beyond the CASP Code of Ethics by expanding on issues facing school psychologists in private practice.

LEPs and Tele (mental) Health


The Board of Behavioral Sciences has issued new rules for licensees and suggestions for consumer regarding online mental health counseling services. Both documents below explain what you can – and cannot – do while providing online counseling services, as well as expectations that your clients should consider before agreeing to counseling over the internet.

 

Board of Behavioral Sciences


The Board of Behavioral Sciences has made recent changes in who can grant continuing education credits to Licensed Educational Psychologists, as well as other licensed therapists. Don’t worry. CASP is still your place to go to get CEUs in topics that will best suit Educational Psychology. However, there are some changes, such as gaining credits by working with the BBS on new licensee examinations and getting all 36 CEUs from webinars.

For more information, please see this brochure, and this chart to see how the new regulations will affect you. All changes take effect on July 1, 2015.
