Wyoming State Board of Psychology

Proposed Rules with Public Comment Period December 23, 2020 through February 16, 2021

Public notice is hereby given that the Wyoming State Board of Psychology is proposing changes to Chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, and 11, and creating new Chapters 14 and 15. The Board is proposing to amend the majority of its rules to correct inconsistencies, eliminate any repetition with its practice act, correct grammatical errors, and update the rules’ requirements. Changes also include allowing for an easier application process for applicants already licensed in another state. Updates were also made to align disciplinary rules with other licensing boards in the State of Wyoming. The proposed new chapters provide supervision guidelines and rules establishing ethical conduct for psychologists. These proposed rules are available for review on the Board's web page at https:// https://psychology.wyo.gov.

Written comments will be accepted at the following address through February 16, 2021:

  • Wyoming State Board of Psychology, 2001 Capitol Ave Rm 105, Cheyenne, WY 82002
