The Connecticut Psychological Association was formed
▪ to further the development and usefulness of psychology as a science, as a profession, and as a means of promoting human welfare;
▪ to establish and maintain high standards of professional competence, of training, of service, and of professional and ethical conduct for its membership;
▪ to provide opportunities for students pursuing training in psychology to become more fully engaged in the standards, interests, and collegiality of the profession; and
to provide opportunities for professional growth and the increase and diffusion of psychological knowledge through the exchange of ideas and information, by means of meetings, professional contacts, papers, discussions, and the encouragement of research in psychology.
