Dr. Stephen Phillips, 56, of Los Angeles, has been appointed to the California Board of Psychology. Phillips has been a clinical psychologist in private practice since 2002, an adjunct faculty and clinical supervisor at the Wright Institute Los Angeles since 2001 and an adjunct instructor at the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University since 1999. He was a psychological assistant for Elaine Schulman, Ph.D. from 2000 to 2002, an attorney in private practice from 1995 to 2004 and served in multiple positions at Shapiro Posell Rosenfeld and Close from 1985 to 1994, including managing partner, litigation department chairperson and associate. Phillips earned a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Chicago Law School and a Doctor of Psychology degree in clinical psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University.

The California Board of Psychology (BOP) was established in 1958 when the first psychologists were certified in the State. In 1967, the Psychology Licensing Law was enacted by the Legislature which: 1) defined and protected the practice of psychology, 2) protected the title “Psychologist,” and 3) changed certification to licensure. It was at this time that regulatory boards shifted their primary focus to protection of the public. The BOP is one of approximately 30 regulatory entities which exist under the organizational structure of the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA). The BOP has a close and cooperative relationship with DCA.
