Essex Union County Association of Psychologists

Introduction

The Essex-Union County Association of Psychologists (EUCAP) is an organization of psychologists who live and/or work in the Essex and Union County regions of New Jersey. EUCAP is an affiliate of the New Jersey Psychological Association (NJPA). Members include licensed psychologists in private practice, those with psychology permits or practicing psychology in exempt settings, psychology professors, and graduate students in psychology.


Purposes

EUCAP's purposes include: Promoting and supporting psychology as a profession; supporting the mission, purposes and programs of the New Jersey Psychological Association (NJPA); and, educating and encouraging EUCAP members to support the political, legislative, and ethical initiatives of NJPA and the American Psychological Association (APA).  Our intention is also to promote the science of psychology as a means of enhancing human welfare, providing continuing education programs for psychologists and fostering amiable relationships among psychologists and members of other professions.  In addition, we engage in other business and professional activities that promote the interests of the organization and its members.  Finally we reach out to the general community and  attempt to provide services of benefit to those who seek our help.

Benefits and Opportunities

EUCAP membership facilitates professional activities in many different ways that address both personal and professional needs. Meetings include presentations on clinical and practice issues, and allow for networking and socializing with colleagues. As a small, member-friendly organization we offer several events and activities for colleagues and guests.

EUCAP invites all members to attend social and professional meetings and events, join committees, and participate in projects pertinent to practice concerns. Other benefits include receipt of regular news updates and action alerts, website access, and publication of individual practice information in a biannual directory.

All members have the opportunity to help shape the organization to better meet our needs and goals. We encourage members to participate actively in EUCAP by joining a committee, offering ideas for programs and projects, and becoming a member of the Executive Board, in addition to attending meetings.
