HIMPSI Jaya 2005-2007, Apa yang Telah Kau Kerjakan? Sebuah Evaluasi Tentang Kinerja Organisasi Profesi Psikologi Wilayah Jakarta


Himpunan Psikologi Indonesia (HIMPSI) is the only organization for psychologists in Indonesia. After almost 50 years since it was founded in 1959, HIMPSI shows limited improvement to its members. HIMPSI Jaya is the Jakarta chapter of the organization.The lack of significant activities raises issues whether the organization benefits to its member. Most complains include slow membership process and difficulties in paying annual fee. This study attempts to evaluate the organization based on the perspectives of members, ex. members, and those who want to be members. It is a descriptive quantitative study and the sample of the population was taken non-randomly. It was a joint project between Atma Jaya Catholic University and HIMPSI Jaya. The sampling technique was convenience sampling. Questionnaire was distributed directly when HIMPSI Jaya held activities and indirectly through beranda@himpsijaya.org mailing list. Of the expected 150 sample size (about 10% of total members who pay annual fee regularly), 83 respondents returned the questionnaires. Most respondents aged between 21 and 30 years old, not married, had been psychologists, and graduated at the master level. Some were fresh graduates and in the process of looking for jobs. This indicates that young members pay attention seriously to the improvement of the organization, especially because they expect HIMPSI helps their careers improved. Members thought that the performance of the organization is very limited. The need to develop professional competency and certification should make HIMPSI Jaya improve its performance.
