    I am a licensed MFT seeking a doctoral degree mainly to increase my clinical knowledge and possibly teaching. I have been practicing as a therapist for 20 years and have a family and other obligations that preclude me from attending a traditional APA psychology program so I'll probably wind up with a distance learning degree such as CSU or Capella. I have no interest in testing. In my humble opinion, I think the APA stranglehold on the psychology field is monopolistic and narrow minded, as a vast number of the LP's that I know provide counseling but have sometimes little education, experience, or the temperament to do so. I think the APA or ACA should work with states to provide guidelines for different doctoral licensing designations (such as Counseling Psychologist, Clinical Psychologist, or Psychometrician rather than a one size fits all approach.

    If cheap and unaccredited is an option, a PhD in metaphysical psychology from the University of Sedona might fit the bill.
    I don't know the rules in Sweden, but in Canada you can legally use a PhD from the University of Sedona in most provinces as long as you don't claim to be a licensed psychologist.

    Or, you might prefer a "real" degree in "real" psychology. It'll cost you more than Sedona's $990 "Doctorate," though. I thought this started out as a serious thread.

    Here's something on Sedona.

    Here's a link to a Sedona "Doctoral Dissertation." Seriously.
