AGPA serves as the voice of group therapy for mental health clinicians and the public-at-large, both nationally and internationally. The AGPA provides vital information on group psychotherapy in a variety of ways. Our efforts provide global access to group psychotherapy education and professional development, research, and outreach services. AGPA promotes awareness about the healing power of group. Learn more about our organization.
The American Group Psychotherapy Association shares the sorrow of those in New Zealand and the bereaved Islamic community across the globe which has witnessed and suffered the atrocity of violence and killing in their place of worship. As people across nations and religions we stand together recognizing the need for tolerance, acceptance and peace.
