Fort Bend Psychological Association (FBPA) was organized to promote psychology as a science and as a profession, to promote human welfare and mental health, to represent psychological practitioners in Southeast Texas, to provide a basis for professional growth and social interaction among area psychologists, and to uphold ethical standards for psychologists.

Throughout the year, FBPA sponsors meetings that provide quality PD presentations. These meetings and the PD certificates are included in your membership. In addition, FBPA sponsors two three-hour workshops that cover your PD requirements for ethics and for diversity. FBPA members receive PD for these activities at a reduced price.
Both meetings and workshops have been held via Zoom meetings since the start of the pandemic. These events have been well attended and well received. At present, we anticipate that both monthly meetings and workshops will continue to be offered via Zoom during 2021 until it is safe for us to meet face-to-face again.
In addition, our legislative representative, Dr. Michael Ditsky, has kept us informed about activities at the state level involving TPA and TSBEP. The Texas legislature will be in session in 2021, and Dr. Ditsky will keep us informed about important bills related to psychology and to human welfare.
Please join your fellow psychologists in Fort Bend County as we promote the important roles that psychologists can assume in our county. Not least, FBPA is the best place to get to know other psychologists in Fort Bend County. Please join now while you are thinking about it.
Note also that FBPA continually looks for members who might like to take a leadership position in supporting our organization and psychology. Members are always welcome at the Executive Committee meetings to help shape our direction.
FBPA meets monthly to hear various topics of interest presented by subject-area experts. Meetings usually occur on the 3rd Wednesday evening of each month, although in-person meetings are now suspended.
Until further notice, future meetings will be by Zoom videochat. Register with Dr. Jo Ann Formby to receive your invitation to these events.

About the Spring Ethics TV Workshop
The Road to Prescriptive Authority
Melody Moore, Ph.D.
Even if you have no interest in pursuing psychopharmacology training yourself, perhaps you are curious about this possibility for our profession in Texas. In this workshop, psychologists will become more informed about the facts regarding prescribing psychologists, why we have a need for it in Texas, why it is good for our profession, and increase knowledge about prescribing psychologists' training and the work they do.
