Professional Guidance Program

The goal and mission of Professional Guidance Program is to assist members in learning about ethics and thinking through ethical dilemmas in their work as psychologists. The program also provides members and non-members of the Psychologists’ Association of Alberta (PAA) with the opportunity to consult and discuss their concerns with the Professional Guidance Director or a Practice Advisor.
