EMERGENCY PRACTICE STATEMENT: Since the State of Alabama is subject to natural, technological, and/or national security hazards that
could result in an emergency or disaster situation that may exhaust resources available from within the State, it may from time to time
be necessary to allow external resources to provide professional services which, under normal circumstances, require a professional license
issued by the State of Alabama or one of its agents.
An individual who is licensed or registered to practice psychology independently in another jurisdiction may practice psychology in Alabama
