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 now review the  Convention Program to plan your schedule for the convention. You can also download the 2016 convention app at eventmobi.com/wpa2016 to you computer or mobile device.

The Schedule of Continuing Education sessions is available.  Note details on registering and sign in/out.

Information on 2016-2017 membership and submissions for the 2017 convention in Sacramento will be available in late June.
