PROFESSIONAL PSYCHOLOGICAL ORGANISATIONS IN BELGIUM
The Belgian Federation for Psychologists is a professional association for all masters in psychology. The BFP-FPB aims to spread and facilitate knowledge of psychological science in the society as well as to protect the needs of professional psychologists and their clients in Belgium. The BFP-FPB assures quality of its members and represents their members in the government for example.
The UPPCF's main purpose is to study, protect and develop the professional interests of clinical psychologists in the Walloon region of Belgium. It was set up following the law "regulating the professions of mental health care" (RD of 04/04/2014). This law provides the establishment of a Federal Council for Clinical Psychology. It is important to have a professional union that is easily identifiable and sufficiently representative for the competent authorities. Since July 2017, the UPPCF has sent representatives to the Federal Council. Thus, it represents its members before the public authorities and advisory bodies in the health sector.
VVKP is the scientific and professional federation of clinical psychologists in Flanders. They represent more than 2500 clinical psychologists: students, researchers and working clinical psychologists. Their mission is to represent your interests! By integrating clinical psychologists in a autonome and worthy way into health-care, they want to make psychological interventions more accessible for the population. They bundle useful information for psychology students on their website.

They want to unite them through training, recruitment, guidance and career development, prevention and protection at work, ... They welcome people who are interested in methods or scientific research about the approach of organizational psychology and people who want to collaborate in the topic of ‘better integration of the person in the workplace’.
The aim of the APTO is to organize activities such as working groups, conferences, thematic days or others in order to allow its members to deepen their knowledge in this field. By welcoming a trainer, a consultant, a researcher or a professor, members can obtain an inventory on a certain topic. It is through these exchanges that APTO wants their members to develop their knowledge and challenge their practices.
