TPA Transgender Statement


The Texas Psychological Association (TPA) is the professional organization for psychologists and its mission is to represent the profession of psychology in Texas, promoting human health and welfare through education, science, and practice. Part of that mission is to ensure that important social policy discussions are informed by the best available research. 

Gender identity is the focus of controversy and debate across the nation. It is important that any
discussion of transgender and gender expansive identities be informed by accurate information.

TPA Appoints New Leadership

The Texas Psychological Association (TPA), the professional association representing more than 1,500 practicing psychologists and graduate students in the state of Texas, named State Capitol veteran Jessica Magee as the association’s new Executive Director, effective January 2, 2020.

“After an extensive, competitive search process, the Texas Psychological Association unanimously agreed that Jessica Magee should lead our association as we work to further advance the public policy, regulatory, legislative and professional interests of Texas psychologists,” said TPA Board President Alice Ann Holland, Ph.D, ABPP.



TPA Drops Lawsuit
Against TSBEP


In 2017, TSBEP adopted new rules that removed the supervision requirement for Licensed Psychological Associates (LPA). Standing by the principle that the doctoral degree is the entry level into the profession of psychology, TPA objected to this action by TSBEP and testified against this rule change when it was presented at a TSBEP meeting. When the rule change went through, TPA filed a lawsuit against TSBEP. Since entering into this lawsuit in 2017, TPA has invested over $76,000 toward this undertaking. We thank the many members and non-members alike who supported this effort financially.
