Western Psychological Association

About WPA

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. Membership in the Western Psychological Association is open to both students and professionals who wish to support these goals and who would like to be a part of the network that we have created to further them.

Aside from the obvious advantages of the educational, professional and social interactions that membership in our association provides, there are other benefits which our members enjoy. These include:

  • receipt of The Western Psychologist newsletter
  • internet access to paper submission, membership, and convention registration forms
  • internet access to the full convention program
  • reduced registration fees for our convention and seminars
  • reduced travel and credit card costs.
