About us

The Union of Psychologists Associations in the Czech Republic (UPA CR) came into being as a professional union of legal entities – psychologists associations and the Czech-Moravian Psychologists Society in 1995.

The aim of the Union is

  • to represent and defend the interests of and to coordinate the activities of psychologists associated in the societies (associations) according to their respective psychological specialisations,
  • to work towards the legal establishment of a psychological corporation,
  • to protect the public from the damage that can be caused by unqualified or incompetent individuals or organisations in the field of practical psychological work.


The goal of the Union is also to provide scope for communication within the psychological community. Its main priorities are within the area of legislature, especially the promotion of a law on psychological activities and the psychological corporation.
