History

On March 29, 2010, the first meeting to form an association of psychologists and related fields in Grenada was held at St. George’s University. Discussions focused on the possible mission of such an organization, particularly as they impacted licensure, and other roles of the profession of psychology.  

 

A committee was formed to draft a constitution, using documents of the American Psychological Association and Trinidad and Tobago Association of Psychologists as frameworks. The final draft was ratified on May 10, 2010. The first executive body was elected on October 26, 2010 and the Grenadian Psychological Association (GPA) was officially launched on November 1, 2011.


The Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct was ratified in January, 2014. Both the GPA Constitution (2013 Amendments) and Ethical Principles are attached to this web-page.


The International Union of Psychological Science, an organization that includes over 80 national psychological associations and promotes psychology in an international context, accepted Grenada into membership in July, 2012.


The GPA is also a member of the Caribbean Alliance of National Psychological Associations, a regional network of national organizations of psychologists from throughout the Caribbean.
