The California Psychological Association - Political Action Committee (CPA-PAC) was formed to encourage psychologists and others to take an active and effective role in government affairs in California.  It is your support that allows the CPA to be an effective advocate for California psychologists and the clients we serve. The CPA-PAC supports candidates for election to political offices, ballot measures, and petition circulation drives which are consistent with the philosophies and interests of psychology as a profession and the psychological well-being of the citizens of the state.



LEARNING ABOUT YOUR MBPA COLLEAGUES: MEMBER INTERVIEW

An important benefit of being an MBPA member is the opportunity to network with colleagues. Clinical practices can often be isolating, particularly in the past several years during the COVID pandemic. We created this questionnaire/interview in hopes that it provides a vehicle for members to learn about and connect with each other.

We know that your time is limited. If you are inclined to participate, there are two ways to do so: 1) Be interviewed by a Board member; or 2) complete the questionnaire yourself, answering as many or as few of the questions as you’d like. We would then, with your permission, like to share your responses with other MBPA members.

To complete the questionnaire yourself, download the file below and return it to deblasband@gmail.com. You don’t have to complete it all at once; your work can be saved. If you’d instead like to arrange an interview with one of our Board members, please contact one of the following:
