To file an ethics complaint, please send a short note by regular mail or fax (not by e-mail) to the Ethics Office. Please provide the name of the individual(s) against whom you wish to file your complaint and the state in which they practice. Address it to:

APA Ethics Office

Washington, DC 20002

The FAX number is (202) 336-5997. Please note that APA has jurisdiction to investigate complaints regarding only APA members.

For questions about the Ethics Codes and noncomplaint-related issues, we request that you phone the Ethics Office directly at (202) 336-5930 or use APA's toll free number (800) 374-2721 and follow the oral directions to reach extension 5930. The complexity involved in responding to ethics matters precludes using email; and very often, a brief telephone conversation can more quickly target the issue involved and facilitate our response.
