Fellow status in the American Psychological Association is formal recognition by professional peers that an individual has achieved great distinction in his or her field. Election to Fellow status in Division 53, the Society of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology, requires evidence of outstanding contributions or performance in the field of psychology, specifically in the area of clinical child and adolescent psychology.
Fellow status requires that a person’s work have had a national impact on the field beyond local, state, or regional levels. A high level of competence or steady and continuing contributions are not sufficient solely to warrant Fellow status. In order to demonstrate outstanding contributions or performance in clinical child and adolescent psychology, the applicant must be able to provide (a) documentation of sustained contributions or performance in clinical child and adolescent psychology over a period of a minimum of ten (10) years, (b) evidence of distinctive contributions to clinical child and adolescent psychology that are recognized by others as excellent, and (c) data exhibiting a documented impact beyond the immediate setting in which the candidate/nominee works.
