The Association of Black Psychologists

The ABPsi, being the principal body consisting of renowned Black psychologists in the USA and beyond, is responsible for taking the primary role in defining the cultural considerations necessary to properly address the psychological needs of African Americans and people of the African Diaspora.
No other organization or entity functions to determine if the particular cultural needs and history of Black people are being properly considered in psychology. This is the core of this program. A basic concern in addressing the needs of the Black community is that every psychologist should meet some pre-determined criteria for understanding the unique needs of Black folk and the historical matrix that established the present conditions faced by all people of African descent.

The premise of this program is for The ABPsi to take responsibility for, and promote, the recognition of African Centered/Black Psychology. The ABPsi is the leader and international resource for addressing the psychological needs of African people throughout the world, and the ABPsi is the only entity to carry the responsibility to certify individuals and institutions as being qualified and proficient in African Centered/Black Psychology, based on an accepted body of knowledge.

Purpose Of The ABPsi:

  • To establish a measure of proficiency and established criteria to offer a certification in African Centered/Black Psychology;
  • To establish the baseline standards and conventional body of knowledge which will define African Centered/Black Psychology its evolution, applications and international recognition;
  • To establish a mechanism within The ABPsi for broadening the professional development and community service for The ABPsi members through licensure, proficiency and certification throughout the profession;.
  • To substantiate The ABPsi as the primary body for shaping the credentials of professionals in psychology and related fields for the practice, education and theory as used for service in various arenas to African American people and people of the African Diaspora.
