About the APA

The American Psychotherapy Association (APA) was developed in 1997 to recognize the importance of maintaining the integrity of the psychotherapeutic process and serve as a voice for psychotherapists.  The diverse membership includes almost 6,000 counselors, social workers, marriage and family therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, nurse psychotherapists, pastoral counselors, and other psychotherapy professionals.  The APA provides opportunities for credentialing, confirming professional identity, networking, and obtaining continuing education.

The APA is concerned with establishing guidelines, promoting education and training and educating the public about the benefits of psychotherapy and providing networking and resource development.
