Parapsychological Association

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

The Parapsychological Association was formed in 1957 “to advance parapsychology as a science, to disseminate knowledge of the field, and to integrate the findings with those of other branches of science.” In 1969, the Association was affiliated with the American Association for the Advancement of Science. The work of the Association is reported in the Journal of Parapsychology and the Journal of the American Society for Psychical Research.
