So, your application for registration without examination for psychologists and psychometricians has finally been approved.  Congratulations!  Now what’s your next move?  Below is a step-by-step guide to register for a Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) license in Psychology.  (Click here for more on Republic Act No. 10029 [The Psychology Law]).

Updated Procedures (Based on the ‘Procedures and Requirements’ listed on the back of the PR Oath Form) [Updated as of July 31, 2014]

Step 1: Check the PRC website to see if you are among those who were approved for licensure without examination.  Should your name be among those listed, take note of the calendar dates when you will be allowed to go to the PRC to register for you Psychology or Psychometrcian license and oath taking.

Step 2: As you enter PRC, immediately line up at one of the two windows on the far right.  Once you reach either window, request for an Oath Form and two pieces of metered documentary stamps [P21 each] (one to be affixed onto the Oath Form and the other for the Certificate of Registration).  Note: if you are registering for more than one license, you will need to ask for a separate Oath Form and pay for the corresponding metered stamps.

Step 3: Fill out the Oath Form. Note: You will be required to provide your current Community Tax Certificate (CTC |Cedula), a short brown envelope [with name and the profession that you are registering for], two (2) 2×2 passport sized photos, and one (1) 1×1 colored photo [White background, collared shirt, name-tag].  It is best to have these items on-hand before entering the PRC.

Step 4: Proceeded to Window 12 in the PRC Main Building for verification of records and assessment.  Note: This is the new Window assigned to those applying for the Psychology and Psychometrician license without examination.

Step 5: After receiving your documents, you can now pay the registration and additional fees at any window—found right outside—the PRC Main Building. Note: Each registration will cost P1050 PHP.

Step 6: Return to Window 12 to accomplish any remaining forms: Fill out your PRC registration card, affix your right thumb mark onto the aforementioned card, sign the registry book, and most importantly, make sure that you have received your claim stub. Note: PRC license cards will be be released two months from the day you complete this registration.

Well, that’s it for now.  Congratulations again for being among the first to be registered as a licensed Psychologist/Psychometrician in the Philippines.

Ever wonder why you read the same book or watch the same show over and over again?

"Other times, the film simply serves as ambient noise while I fall asleep."

“Other times, the film simply serves as ambient noise while I fall asleep.”

Over the past few months, I’ve noticed that I have repeatedly watched—to some degree—the same movie each night before going to bed.  Oftentimes, I cut straight to my favorite parts and mouth choice lines even before they grace my iPad’s screen.  Other times, the film simply serves as ambient noise while I fall asleep.

Have you ever had a similar experience?  Stopped to reflect: Why this particular movie considering you have watched so many others?

According to Scientific American writer Sunny Sea Gold, people tend to “use familiar entertainment to measure how their lives have changed in positive ways.”  While in a study conducted by Cristel Antonia Russell as cited in Gold (2012) on people who had “recently ‘reconsumed’ a book, movie, or vacation spot,” it was gleamed that the respondents engage in familiar activities due to the comfort that they will receive from it (e.g., excitement, laughter, relaxation, etc.).

In addition, the respondents also “gained personal insight” and some measure of “growth” based whenever they watched the rerun or jumped back into that familiar book.

What was your personal insight?  Was it a positive or negative one?

Why not get a pen and paper and jot down some notes today.
