Who Are We? 

The Wisconsin Psychological Association is the official state affiliate of the American Psychological Association. Our members represent all parts of Wisconsin and all settings in which psychologists teach, conduct research, administer programs and provide direct services to the public..

Our Mission 

Our Mission is to advance psychology as a profession which promotes human welfare through the ethical application of psychological principles in research, teaching and practice.

          We provide a professional identity for psychologists by maintaining active affiliation with APA and advocating on behalf of the profession and the interests of our members.   We encourage a scientific attitude toward psychological practice by providing forums for the professional exchange of information and opinion about the diversity of psychological issues and of the profession itself.   We address concerns of our communities by responding as a profession to psychological and social needs of Wisconsin         citizens and by educating the public about psychology and psychological issues.
