Additional Services Offered

Referral Service

Members who join WCPA’s Referral Service are listed on our public Find A Psychologist page and are given priority when WCPA is contacted for referrals. $30/year

Test Kit Library

The Test Kit Library is a co-op established to allow individuals access to an array of testing materials to use occasionally in practice. A list of current tests can be found here.

The library uses all library membership funds to purchase testing materials and related forms. Library members who wish to offer their personally owned testing materials for occasional lending can do so on a completely voluntary basis. These materials are not published publicly, but our members’ generosity has allowed an extensive list of tests available beyond those owned by the library. When borrowing a test that is personally owned, we ask that you reimburse the owner for any forms you use.

Library members can email Jonathan Sinowitz, the Test Kit Library Coordinator with questions, borrowing requests or acquisition suggestions. Test lending is first come, first serve and the period of lending is typically from two days to a week.
$70.00 for the first year, $50.00 thereafter without lapse.

Speakers Bureau

Members who join WCPA’s Speakers Bureau are listed on our public Speakers Bureau page and are given priority when WCPA is contacted for speakers.
