News & Announcements...
IMPORTANT! WEBSITE UPDATE!

This is an informational announcement about some changes to the way that you and the Ohio Board of Psychology will be managing information about your license, your supervisees, and your requests for services from the Board office.

The Board has transitioned to the state of Ohio’s new online application, license management, supervision management, and license renewal system. The eLicense Ohio system operates in a secure web-based environment, and will allow you to take care of essentially all Board business and payments online, including supervisee registration and termination, address changes, license verification requests, duplicate card and wall certificate requests, and biennial license renewal (next renewal period begins summer 2018). 

Over the next several weeks all license holders will receive information by email, including a unique, personal security code and instructions on how to register and authenticate an online user account. You must first register as a user before you can transact any online business with the Board.

One of the most exciting features of the new system will be online registration and termination of supervisees. When logged in to your account, you will be able to review your registered supervisees, terminate (“deactivate”) those who are no longer under supervision, and register new supervisees.

The paper Supervisee Registration Form has been decommissioned. You can resume registration and termination of supervisees online after we email your security codes and instructions on setting up a user account during the week of June 19th.

What to do right now? Please sit tight and await system registration instructions and information about setting up your user account.  Please be aware that there might be disruptions and construction on our website in preparation for this transition.

Thank you,

Ronald R. Ross, Ph.D., Executive Director

Human Trafficking in Ohio

​Jan. 9, 2014 - Today, Gov. John Kasich kicked off a new public awareness campaign to ramp-up Ohio’s ongoing fight against human trafficking, the illegal trade of people for commercial sex or forced labor exploitation that enslaves approximately 1,000 Ohioans every year. The new campaign, led by the Ohio Human Trafficking Task Force, gives Ohioans new resources for how they can personally help combat the problem by reporting suspicious activity. It also is aimed at connecting with trafficking victims themselves, with outreach materials in places where they are likely to see them, such as public transit sites and highway rest areas. Details of the campaign can be found here: HumanTrafficking.Ohio.Gov.

Human trafficking – the illegal trade of human beings for commercial sexual exploitation and forced labor – is one of the fastest growing criminal enterprises worldwide. Each year an estimated 1,078 Ohio children become victims of human trafficking and 3,016 more are at-risk for exploitation.
