We support all psychologists in their professional practice and in consolidating their professional identity. We achieve this, among other things, by providing guidance in establishing a professional existence and by continuously providing up-to-date information from science and practice for everyday professional life.

We open up and secure professional fields and ensure that findings in psychology are implemented competently and responsibly. In addition, we strengthen the reputation of all psychologists in public and represent our own professional policy positions in society.
