What is PAP?

Founded in 1962, the Psychological Association of the Philippines (PAP) is an organization committed to the promotion of excellence in the teaching, research, and practice of Psychology, 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) of the Republic of the Philippines. It is the oldest and largest professional organization of psychologists in the country.

To date, 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 four (4) special interest groups (SIGs), namely, Teaching Psychology SIG, Mental Health and Psychosocial Services (MHPSS) SIG, Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Psychology SIG, and Sports and Exercise Psychology SIG.
