LPA Mission Statement
The mission of LPA is the advancement of
psychology as a science, as a profession,
and as a means of promoting health,
education, and human welfare.
Welcome to the Louisiana Psychological Association
Membership in the Louisiana Psychological Association is a necessity in order to ensure that each psychologist has the ability to practice their profession in the best environment possible. With your LPA membership, the Association can continue to guarantee that you will be connected to local, state, and federal officials, without ever having to leave your office. What makes associations so powerful, and what we are striving for, is for every Licensed Psychologist in the state of Louisiana to be an LPA member. When standing in unison, the LPA speaks in a collective voice.
Please join or renew your LPA dues using the attached form or here online as soon as possible. There is no better investment as a psychologist in Louisiana! With all of the significant changes going on, it is critically important to stay informed and know that your voice is being heard. We have a fantastic year lined up for the Louisiana Psychological Association and want you to be a part of it!
