The Association of Black Psychologists was founded in San Francisco, California, in 1968. The Association of Black Psychologists is the leader and international resource for addressing the psychological needs of African people throughout the world.
Our research, publications, assessment techniques, therapeutic strategies, and training programs establish the Association (ABPSI) as the recognized authority for providing practical solutions to the day-to-day circumstances of our people. We collaborate with other professional associations in Social work, Law, Medicine, and related social service disciplines, to formulate or influence programs and policies that seek positive solutions to the challenges facing our people.
We provide information and training to promote a compassionate, African-centered approach for healing and health promotion.
