58th PAP Annual Convention (2022)

September 22-24 2022 Virtual Event

What is PAP?

The Psychological Association of the Philippines (PAP), founded in 1962, is committed to promoting excellence in psychology`s teaching, research, and practice and its recognition as a scientifically oriented discipline for human and social development.

The PAP is the Accredited Integrated Professional Organization (AIPO) for registered psychometricians and psychologists of the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC). It is the oldest and largest professional organization of psychologists in the country.

The organization certifies specialists in seven (7) areas of expertise within the broad discipline of psychology. Concurrently, it also has seven major divisions representing each of these specialty areas, which are as follows: Assessment Psychology, Clinical Psychology, Counseling Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Educational Psychology, Industrial-Organizational Psychology, and Social Psychology. Apart from these divisions, members also take part in the ten (10) special interest groups (SIGs), namely, Teaching Psychology SIG, Mental Health and Psychosocial Services (MHPSS) SIG, Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Psychology SIG, Sport and Exercise Psychology SIG, Substance Use, Prevention, and Recovery SIG, Psychology Practitioners in Public Service SIG, Environmental Psychology SIG, Positive Psychology SIG, Research in Psychology, and Persons with Disabilities (PWD) Psychology SIG. To date, PAP also has expanded itself to serve its members better by organizing six (6) regional chapters: Bicol, Northern Luzon, Central Luzon, Calabarzon-Mimaropa, Davao, and United Arab Emirates.
