Opportunities to Partner with AGPA to Achieve Healthy Communities Through Therapeutic Group Work

 

The American Group Psychotherapy Association (AGPA) is a dynamic, thriving community made up of mental health professionals of all disciplines dedicated to excellence in therapeutic group work.  AGPA is a non-profit organization which is a unique blend of member services and direct service.  AGPA provides intervention, training, consultation and care nationally and internationally.  The Association is made up of 30 local and regional societies whose membership includes psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, clinical mental health counselors, pastoral counselors and creative arts therapists.  Our 2,500+ members are experienced mental health professionals who lead psychotherapy groups as well as non-clinical groups of various kinds.  Many are organizational specialists who work with businesses, not-for-profit organizations, communities, and other "natural" groups to help them improve their functioning.

Mission Statement: The American Group Psychotherapy Association advances knowledge, research, and training in Group Psychotherapy for professional and public benefit. The Association provides a network for peer support, advocates the highest standards and ethics in group psychotherapy practices, and promotes the appropriate use of group modalities in the human services.

Since life takes place in naturally occurring groups such as families, schools, workplaces and communities, group interventions provided by well-trained leaders are especially well-suited to providing opportunities for healing and personal change.  Group is also known as a more affordable, just as effective alternative to individual therapy.1

The Annual Institute and Conference of AGPA offer participants from diverse clinical disciplines the opportunity to advance their knowledge and skills in group psychotherapy and related fields. Outcomes derived from the Annual Meeting include: development of new clinical approaches, refinement of therapeutic methods, exchange of clinical and empirical knowledge with colleagues, exposure to current research and theory, and the opportunity to participate in a peer support network.
