The Athens Area Psychological Association (AAPA) is a non-profit, professional organization of licensed psychologists and others involved in the delivery of psychological services.
Originally formed in the early 1980s to address the professional needs of local psychologists, AAPA has grown from a small network of private practitioners to a professional association that is dedicated to serving our varied membership including school psychologists, psychologists in academe, private practitioners and psychology students.
In addition to serving as an advocate for area professionals, AAPA strives to promote the professional development of our members through the provision of a variety of continuing education programs. The Athens Area Psychological Association supports the continued networking of area psychologists to enhance the delivery of mental health care to the Northeast Georgia community.
The Athens Area Psychological Association represents psychologists and others involved in the delivery of psychological services in Athens, Georgia, and the surrounding community. The purpose of the Athens Area Psychological Association is to uphold psychology as a science and a profession and to promote its appropriate and ethical applications in the interest of human welfare.
