24.Mar.2010 American Board of Examiners in Clinical Social Work: Time to Give Thanks for Honest, Ethical Organizations

Filed In: ABE, American Board of Examiners, Janelle Burrill, Psychologists

Many times, victims of corrupt psychologists (like Janelle Burrill) will be pretty abrasive in their methods of trying to get satisfaction for totally being screwed over.  Believe me, I know how they feel.  When injured parties are ignored time and time again, often with organizations sometimes "protecting" their own, the criticism can come quick.  I saw it from some of the comments on my old website (which Janelle Burrill previously gagged for reporting on her ethical transgressions) as well as comments on other fellow blogger's websites.  I read the pain in the victim's communications when dealing with the support group.  I still feel the pain as more victims come forward.  Although I had never said anything about the various investigations or the organizations conducting them, I read the frustration in the comments and winced somewhat…only because it usually takes a very squeaky wheel to make people take action.  I was grateful that the organizations were starting to do something though.

Which brings me to the American Board of Examiners (ABE).  When I first post on the revocation of Janelle Burrill,  much of the personal feedback I got from professionals in the trenches was that the ABE needed to be thanked.  They were the first to step up and take action, and this was amazing in itself when things can drag on in these processes.  They truly do care about the competence and the ethics of the members they certify for us.  So I thank Mr. Robert A. Booth, Jr., Executive Director of ABE and the Board of Directors for giving us an organization we can believe in.  Keep up the good work…there are a lot of "Burrills" out there.

Here is a little about them, from their website:

About Board Certification

The Board Certified Diplomate in Clinical Social Work (BCD) certification is a national hallmark of quality practice, recognized by insurors, professionals, courts, and consumers. The BCD is issued by the American Board of Examiners (ABE) to those who have, through an examination process and professional attainments, proved their ability to practice advanced-generalist clinical social work at a high level of competency.

In addition to the advanced-generalist BCD certification, clinical social workers may be certified for competency in Clinical Supervision, Practice with Children & Their Families, and Psychoanalysis. They can be found, with many details of their practice and background, in a free searchable-sortable Internet service, the Online BCD Directory.

BCD Clinical Social Workers affirm annually, through an audited process, that they meet standards for continuing education, currency of clinical practice, and state licensure in good standing. Annual recertification, unique to BCD certification, enables ABE to serve as an official verifier of healthcare services compliant with NCQA, JCAHO, and other criteria.

For healthcare delivery systems seeking a true measure of advanced competency, the BCD is the gold standard. In the U.S. uniformed services, the BCD is a criterion for up to $5,000 in bonus pay. Some insurance systems strengthen their practitioner panels by extending preferred status to BCD Clinical Social Workers, and many agencies reimburse for the costs of board certification.

Janelle Burrill - “QUACK” without a license to practice psychology

We spoke to the board extensively and the enforcement division recommends us to file a complaint against Janelle Burrill because practicing psychology without a licence is a crime. Please take a few minutes and file a complaint online .

https://app.dca.ca.gov/psychboard/complaints.asp

Janelle Burrill presented to her victims as an expert in psychology. She assessed, diagnosed and determined many of her victims as psychotic, sociapath, impulse control freaks, suffering from bi-polar disorders and doles out DSM-V diagnosis and prescribes psychiatric medicine as candies after talking to them for a few minutes.

She had a registration to work under the supervision of a licensed psychologist for a couple of years which was terminated in 2006. PSB30484 (Mar 18 2004 – July 21 2006). If she engaged in the practice of psychology from 2006 onwards – which we believe, she did then she committed a crime. The practice of psychology is defined as rendering or offering to render for a fee to individuals, groups, organizations or the public any psychological service involving the application of psychological principles, methods, and procedures of understanding, predicting, and influencing behavior, such as the principles pertaining to learning, perception, motivation, emotions, and interpersonal relationships; and the methods and procedures of interviewing, counseling, psychotherapy, behavior modification, and hypnosis; and of constructing, administering, and interpreting tests of mental abilities, aptitudes, interests, attitudes, personality characteristics, emotions, and motivations

California Board of Psychology Rules and Regulations #2903

Licensure Requirement; Practice of Psychology; Psychotherapy; Fee
§ 2903. No person may engage in the practice of psychology, or represent himself or herself to be a psychologist, without a license granted under this chapter, except as otherwise provided in this chapter. The practice of psychology is defined as rendering or offering to render for a fee to individuals, groups, organizations or the public any psychological service involving the application of psychological principles, methods, and procedures of understanding, predicting, and influencing behavior, such as the principles pertaining to learning, perception, motivation, emotions, and interpersonal relationships; and the methods and procedures of interviewing, counseling, psychotherapy, behavior modification, and hypnosis; and of constructing, administering, and interpreting tests of mental abilities, aptitudes, interests, attitudes, personality characteristics, emotions, and motivations.
The application of these principles and methods includes, but is not restricted to: diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and amelioration of psychological problems and emotional and mental disorders of individuals and groups. Psychotherapy within the meaning of this chapter means the use of psychological methods in a professional relationship to assist a person or persons to acquire greater human effectiveness or to modify feelings, conditions, attitudes and behavior which are emotionally, intellectually, or socially ineffectual or maladjustive.
As used in this chapter, ‘‘fee’’ means any charge, monetary or otherwise, whether paid directly or paid on a prepaid or capitation basis by a third party, or a charge assessed by a facility, for services rendered.
