The Michigan Psychological Association condemns the violence witnessed on Wednesday January 6th 2021 at the U.S. Capitol.  This horrific and deadly incursion was especially troubling to us as Michiganders, as it followed a protest by armed militias in our State Capitol and a domestic terrorist plot against our Governor.  We support the American Psychological Association's statement, and further endorse that trauma is cumulative and psychologists have a critical role to play in informing the public on psychological science as it pertains to anti-racism and building resilience during uncertain times within our communities. 

During this time of the pandemic, the Michigan Psychological Association has followed with interest the difficulties that psychology licensure applicants have experienced with the EPPP.  Please read MPA's Letter to Board of Psychology!
