The BC Psychologist Guidelines


The publication of the BC Psychological Association

This publication offers a venue for psychologists across BC to communicate and exchange opinions about recent advances in psychological research, discuss the impact of current events and legislation on psychologists, and find out more about colleagues and their original work; it is also a forum where ethics, as it relates to the practice of psychology, can be explored.

Members and affiliates receive a free yearly subscription to the BC Psychologist as part of their membership or affiliation benefits. They can also log in and download a PDF version of the publication from the bottom of this page.



During the last year, our brand new Journal Committee has put a lot of thought and effort into modernizing the BC Psychologist with the goal of creating a publication that our readers really look forward to receiving.

Based on recent feedback from our members, the committee has decided to move from quarterly to semi-annual publications.

Members now have the opportunity to opt in to receive a printed, colour version sent straight to their mailbox. All members will continue to have access to the digital version via the BCPA website.
