Confidential Ethics Consultation: TPA Ethics Committee


The TPA Ethics Committee is not an enforcement body; it is a professional resource for TPA members to use to obtain confidential consultation on ethics issues. The chair of the Committee is Dr. Malcolm Spica, and members can initiate a consultation with the committee by contacting him by email, at  


The Ethics Committee is composed of TPA members in each of the three Grand Divisions of Tennessee: West Tennessee, Middle Tennessee and East Tennessee. Its task is to provide supportive consultation regarding ethics, laws of practice, and risk management. We do not perform investigations, determine guilt or innocence, or take punitive action. All consultations are confidential and that confidentiality is protected by Tennessee law.   


If a complaint is received against a TPA member, we will contact the member - only for the purpose of offering consultation in regard to the alleged violation. Our goal is to assist psychological practitioners in understanding and problem-solving, with the recognition that each practitioner is free to make (and is responsible for) their own choices. Please e-mail Dr. Malcolm Spica, Chair Tennessee Ethics Committee if the Committee can be of assistance.
