Western Psychological Association


The Western Psychological Association was founded in 1921 for the purpose of stimulating the exchange of scientific and professional ideas and, in so doing to enhance interest in the processes of research and scholarship in the behavioral sciences. Support these goals by joining  and attending our annual convention.

The 2016 WPA Convention in Long Beach was a big success. See the Gallery tab for convention photos plus a special video of the Psi Chi Address by Dacher Keltner on The Science of Inside Out.

You can review the 2016  Convention Program. Watch for information on the 2017 convention by going to the convention web page.

We will again offer CE credit to professionals attending the 2017 convention. There is an extra fee for CE credit. The 2016 Schedule of Continuing Education sessions is available to give you an idea of our program.  Information on 2017 CE sessions will be available in early spring 2017.

Information on 2016-2017 membership and submissions for the 2017 convention in Sacramento is now available.
