As the largest body representing psychologists in Australia, the APS promotes the profession to a range of health bodies, task forces and advisory groups.
The Manager of Professional Issues is responsible for consulting and liaising with all levels of governments on behalf of the profession. The Society puts forward a psychological perspective on key issues to protect and advance the interests of psychologists, as well as the welfare of individuals and groups in the community.
For more information about the Society’s many initiatives, covering health, mental health, legal/systemic issues, social issues and family, see APS submissions.
Liaison with the Psychology Board of Australia
The APS fosters a relationship with the Psychology Board of Australia (PBA), and the APS President and Executive Director meet formally with the PBA at the annual national conference. To view contact details for the PBA, see Psychology Board of Australia.
