ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS

January 28, 2011

The Psychological Association of the Philippines (PAP) has long advocated for a law that will ensure the quality of the practice of psychology. In the early 1980s, the PAP moved for a bill requiring licensure for practitioners of psychology with the Batasan Pambansa. After three decades, a bill regulating the practice of psychology was finally passed by the Senate and the House of Representatives. On March 16, 2010, Republic Act 10029 or the “Philippine Psychology Act of 2009” was signed into law.

The 2011 PAP Annual Convention will focus on the meaning of RA 10029 and its implications to Filipino psychologists especially those engaged in the practice of assessment, counseling, and clinical psychology. Likewise, the implications of RA 10029 to Filipino psychologists in all areas of specialization will be discussed. The convention will highlight how the new law will shape and impact the future of psychology in the Philippines, including the teaching of psychology, the conduct of licensure examinations, and the implementation of regulatory measures. It is the hope of the PAP that the new law will promote excellence in the practice of psychology.

The PAP invites psychologists, both scholars and practitioners, to share their work on any area of psychology through paper presentations, poster presentations, and panel or symposia. With the focus on the practice of psychology, the PAP especially welcomes papers by practitioners in the different areas of psychology. Theoretical papers, empirical research papers, and papers documenting practices may be submitted for presentation.

The Scientific Program Committee will issue the guidelines and forms for submission of abstracts by 14 February 2011. Kindly wait for further announcements. All abstracts for paper presentation must be submitted by 15 March 2011.
