Mission of the American Psychotherapy Association

The mission of the American Psychotherapy Association is to assume the leadership role in advancing the profession of psychotherapy.  The APA exists to help members to help their clients and to increase their professional practice.  The APA is concerned with establishing guidelines, promoting education and training, confirming the professional identity of the members, educating the public about the benefits of psychotherapy and providing networking and resource development.

The purpose of the APA is to establish a cohesive national organization that credentials ethical, highly-educated and well-trained psychotherapists.  The APA provides members with opportunities to associate with one another.  The common goal of APA members is to maintain a tradition which is of great value to individuals and society as a whole.
