By the way:

BDP is the German Association of Professional Psychologists [Berufsverband Deutscher Psychologinnen und Psychologen (BDP)], which represents the professional interests of all certified psychologists in Germany who belong to the association. It is also responsible for the recognition of degrees and titles earned abroad, as is the case with my title.


Ldo. stands for “Licenciado”, a title awarded by Portuguese universities upon completion of a thesis. The degree is comparable to a Masters degree or a German Diplom.
