About Us

Association of Psychologist in Nepal (APN) is recently establish with seven members of Psychology Department, Trichandra College to bring the psychologist of Nepal under one umbrella. Our old association NPA is defunct for many years we tried our best to revive the old one which was established when I was student in 1980. It has been worked properly for many years extending relation with International associations and organized International conference even. Unfortunately we do not have any record and evidence of its history. That is the reason; we finally reached a consensus to reestablish a new association with members who were the lifelong members of NPA and young diligent faculties.
