BC Psychologist



The quarterly publication of the BC Psychological Association

The publication is distributed online among members of the Association, and every July we print and distribute the Summer issue to prospective affiliates and new registrants of the College of Psychologists of BC. 

This publication offers a venue for psychologists across BC to communicate and exchange opinions about recent advances in psychological research, discuss the impact of current events and legislation on psychologists, and find out more about colleagues and their original work; it is also a forum where ethics, as it relates to the practice of psychology, can be explored.

Members and affiliates receive a free yearly subscription to the BC Psychologist as part of their membership or affiliation benefits. They can also log in and download a PDF version of the publication from the bottom of this page.
