Isn't it about time psychologists were granted prescription privileges ?
Clinical psychologists have increasingly been questioning why it is that they do not possess prescription privileges.
As much as this has important implications for the profession through greater control of patient care, it would also benefit society as a whole in terms of a larger number of competent prescribers who are familiar with both the physical and Psychological aspects of mental illness and its treatment.
This would result in a better integration of psychotropic medications with other bands on the therapeutic spectrum.
Despite these potential goods, the fight to gain prescription privileges will not be an easy one, even assuming that consensus within the field may be reached.
