DCPA's Response to Recent Executives Orders 

The District of Columbia Psychological Association condemns, in the strongest possible terms, the President’s Executive Actions this week concerning immigration, national security, and border security. These actions are inherently harmful to the wellbeing of citizens and non-citizens alike, and, through their clearly discriminatory effect, fundamentally undermine the diversity that makes America great. 

We also strongly condemn discrimination in all its forms. When those in greatest need of assistance, such as refugees, are ignored; when immigrants are vetted based on their religion, national origin or ethnicity; when the government uses fear as a tool of policy to divide families and single out communities for enforcement purposes, this is not just unacceptable: it is un-American.

DCPA Book Club

2017 will be a vibrant and fascinating year for DCPA's Book Club!  You do not have to read the book of the month to be a part of the discussion.  And bring friends!

Please join us on February 23 event for our discussion on:

IDIOT BRAIN: What Your Head is Really Up To by Neuroscientist Dean Burnett

In an engaging and often humorous fashion, Dean Burnett discusses: blind spots, blackouts, insomnia, why we may remember faces, but not names, miss things sitting right in front of us, refuse to change our minds about that in which we have an emotional investment, and lie awake at night while our brains replay our greatest fears on an endless loop.
