The Norwegian Psychological Association (NPF) is a professional society for those who are authorized as psychologists in Norway. All members all have at least six years of university education and training in psychology, based on the scientific/practitioner model. We organize close to 9000 members, which accounts for approximately 90 percent of authorized psychologists in Norway.
The Norwegian Psychological Association is made up of 19 local chapters. Each chapter is geographically linked to one of Norway’s 19 counties.
Every three years the national convention of the Norwegian Psychological Association meets to elect a central executive council. The national convention also passes important recommendations and statutes that regulate the principles governing the work of the association’s elected executive council and administrative branch. The national convention is made up of delegates elected by the 19 local chapters of the Association.
All psychologists employed in any private or public organization in Norway, are obliged to elect a colleague that represents the interests of the NPF at their work place. The representative ensures that the rights and interests of psychologists employed in their organization are protected and safeguarded. Elected representatives work in close cooperation with members of NPF’s central administration on significant issues such as salary negotiations and financial settlements.
