Become a VPA member today! In addition to the benefits you receive personally from a VPA membership, your dues help ensure we can continue our efforts to advocate for and support legislation that matters to you and your clients.

  • Free ethics consultations

I initially joined VPA because I felt it was the right thing to do.  However, it was only once I began attending more CE events and getting to know my colleagues that I knew my VPA membership was a worthwhile investment.  It's been a privilege to be a member of VPA and because of my membership, it's been an honor to serve on the Board of Directors.

Working to advance mental health care for Vermonters since 1950

I have been impressed with VPA's support for legislative actions that aim to improve mental health care for all Vermonters. I’ve also benefited from gathering with mental health providers from different backgrounds and professions at CE events where we share experiences and gain support and ideas from each other. I know these events could not happen without an active and vibrant VPA membership.

--Gus Jordan, Ph.D., Executive Director, Health & Counseling Center, Middlebury College

Without VPA to inform and fight for us, we are in the dark until the wolf is at the door. The importance of advocacy can not be understated. . . . Camaraderie and the chance for discussions with colleagues are true opportunities.  VPA provides CE close to home, insurance information and ethics consultations, as well as legislative testimony on behalf of Psychology. VPA membership is a professional necessity and a privilege.

--Charlotte R. McGray, Psy.D., Clinical Psychologist

VPA is the primary advocate for legislation and policy development to assure the most effective services for psychological services for Vermonters.  VPA is a wonderful source of support for professional and personnel growth for psychologists so as to provide increasingly effective professional services to Vermonters.  VPA supports the development of professional relationships with other colleagues and supports psychologists taking leadership roles in psychology.  Finally, VPA provides . . . excellent continuing education programs & opportunities for discussion of, and advocacy for, practice issues and psychological services to Vermonters.

--Richard W. Root,  Ed.D., Clinical Psychologist
