Black Psychology Section – CPA

There are two ways to join this section:

1 – Join the Section for Black Psychology without joining the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA). This means you will be a Section Associate. This option is appropriate for individuals who do not qualify for membership (e.g., their degrees are in social work, counselling, psychotherapy, etc. rather than psychology) or are interested in joining only one section and receiving their section communication, along with a quarterly newsletter from the CPA.This is a two-step process.

2 – Join the Canadian Psychological Association AND join the Section for Black Psychology. Click here.
