Abstract: 
The Singapore Psychological Society (SPsS) was established in 1979. Its primary
objective is to advance psychology as a science and as a profession in Singapore. The society
strives to accomplish these objectives through: 1) disseminating information about the roles,
responsibilities, qualifications & training of psychologists; 2) organising public talks on
matters in particular fields of psychology; 3) advocating and maintaining standards of
professional ethics among psychologists in Singapore (in respect of the teaching, researching
and practising of psychology); and 4) seeking to ensure that only appropriately qualified
persons conduct and interpret psychological tests. Recent SPsS’s profession education and
community psychology programmes included talks on psychotherapy, psychological
assessments, and employment trends in Singapore. The SPsS intends to set up a website that
would inform its members and the general public about SPsS’s activities and functions. SPsS
also provides career guidance information for teachers & students interested in psychology or
other related courses. A significant number of SPsS members are educational psychologists
working in the Ministry of Education, or providing psychological services through social
service or private practice agencies. SPsS encourages school teachers and administrators to join
the society and to be familiar with the contributions of psychology and the roles of
psychologists in education
