香港臨床心理學博士協會就811事件的回應

August 15, 2019

本會最近留意到警察與示威者的衝突,雙方暴力不斷升級,尤其是811的多宗衝突事件,除了危害公眾健康及安全,並造成大眾不安,本會深表關注。以武力對抗暴力,只會加深仇恨。在心理學來説, 在遇到威脅時, 人很容易會對叧外團體產生敵意, 而對自己所屬團體更加欣賞, 最近的警民衝突, 以至 813機場事件正反映...

HIGHLIGHTS

ABOUT THE ACCREDITED REGISTERS (AR) SCHEME

At present, there is no official statutory regulation for the practice of clinical psychology in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR). It is not MANDATORY for any person to be licensed or registered with a government agency or professional board in order to practise as a clinical psychologist in the HKSAR.

The Hong Kong Association of Doctors in Clinical Psychology (HKADCP)  is dedicated to the interests of the public who have significant unmet needs to be served by quality clinical practitioners. The Register of Clinical Psychologists of HKADCP thus shall serve practising clinical psychologists as a register that can recognize their professional qualifications to provide clinical psychological services to the community.

Although qualified clinical psychologists are encouraged to apply for inclusion in the HKADCP Register, doing so implies no legality of its status and/or exclusivity of any other practitioners to provide clinical psychological services in the HKSAR and elsewhere.

This contrasts with a much lower ratio in the United Kingdom (UK, 1:5000) and the United States of America (US, 1:3000). The HK Social Welfare Department (SWD) Clinical Psychological Service Branch reported that the average waiting time for a first appointment with a clinical psychologist was 46.3 days (HKLegislative Council, 2017), with very infrequent follow-up appointments......

本會認為心理學組的觀點徧頗, 資料內容亦是片面不全及有失實之虞。心理學組更向傳媒發放不實報道,而不是理性地就認證程序作開誠布公的討論。心理學組既非教育機構,亦非認證機構,但卻以權威的姿態批評同業,發放不實報道,實有違專業道德之嫌。本會就此舉及相關之表述表示不解及極度失望 ......
