Welcome to KGCPA website! - this is the official website of the Association of Clinical Psychologists working in Kerala Government Services.

About Us:

Clinical psychology is a broad field of practice and research within the discipline of psychology, which applies psychological principles. It has a broad approach to human problems (both individual and interpersonal) consisting of assessment, diagnosis, consultation, treatment, program development, administration, and research with regard to numerous populations, including children, adolescents, adults, the elderly, families, groups, and disadvantaged persons.
