New BRAIN members are accepted upon referral from a member of AACN or an already existing member of BRAIN (who may or may not have completed the ABPP process). This person is considered the new member’s “sponsor.” The key role of the sponsor is to vouch for the seriousness of the candidate in pursuing ABCN certification and for their suitability as a member of the listserv. The only other criterion to join BRAIN is that the new member be a licensed psychologist.
If you would like to join the BRAIN study group, please complete the following form. After receiving this information, we will send an email to the new member and the sponsor, which will include an introductory welcome letter and listserve registration information. We will subsequently post the biosketches of new members to the BRAIN listserve as a means of introducing them to the group.
