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.

Function:

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.
