Welcome! The Connecticut Psychological Association, as the voice of psychology in our state, welcomes members, students, consumers, and visitors to our Association and its website. CPA’s mission is to further the development and usefulness of psychology as a science, as a profession, and as a means of promoting human welfare.
Founded in 1963 as a successor to the worthy traditions of the Connecticut Valley Association of Psychologists and the Connecticut State Psychological Society, the Connecticut Psychological Association is the Connecticut affiliate of the American Psychological Association.
The Connecticut Psychological Foundation is seeking nominations for the Catherine Acuff Awards; self-nominations are welcome. The Catherine Acuff Awards are given to a psychologist and/or graduate student of psychology who demonstrates commitment, as did Catherine Acuff, to the application of psychological knowledge and expertise to the solution of larger societal problems. A second award is available for student research. See links above for more information. Donate to the Foundation here.
