Who We Are:

The Lane County Psychologists’ Association (LCPA) is a professional membership organization and is registered as a public benefit corporation. Our membership consists of licensed psychologists, psychologist associates, psychologist residents, and psychologist associate residents. In addition, our allied members include unlicensed doctoral psychologists functioning as educators, researchers or consultants, doctoral interns in psychology and doctoral students in psychology.

Our Purpose:

Public Interest
Create a visible presence of psychologists providing direct benefit to the Lane County community through education and outreach that promotes wellness, emotional resilience, and the equitable and just treatment of all persons and groups.

Advocacy
Safeguard the accessibility of mental healthcare in the Lane County community and the security of practicing psychologists by advocating for legislative and regulatory actions that guide mental health parity, healthcare reform, network adequacy, professional licensing and insurer reimbursement for psychological services.

Professional Connection
Build an inclusive, welcoming and diverse community of Lane County psychologists in order to develop networks of support and consultation, a sense of professional identity, and knowledge of local resources to facilitate effective referral and collaboration.

Continuing Education
Provide Lane County psychologists with continuing education training to promote the delivery of psychological services in the community that are consistent with current APA standards of ethical conduct and guidelines for diversity and multicultural practice within professional psychology.

Committees:

Each LCPA purpose will be directed by a committee of LCPA members who will oversee at least one project/activity per year that is consistent with their respective purpose. Committees will provide the opportunity for more LCPA members to take ownership of the organization through leadership, to be engaged in meaningful activities consistent with our purposes, and to get to know each other better.
