- About Us
The Austin Group Psychotherapy Society is an interdisciplinary organization of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and counselors who share a mutual commitment to continuing professional development and to excellence in the practice of group psychotherapy.
Over the past decade, the Austin Group Psychotherapy Society (AGPS) has gained national recognition for the quality of our training opportunities and the warmth and enthusiasm of our members.
AGPS trainings and social events are designed to mentor new professionals and students, expand the knowledge and clinical skills of all members, and enrich and rejuvenate established practitioners.
At the center of our training opportunities are Fall and Spring workshops facilitated by internationally recognized experts in the field of group theory and practice. Additional trainings by local professionals cover a broad range of topics.
In addition to these workshops, our popular Friday Night Conversation Series provides an opportunity for learning in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. This series of informal discussions of group-related topics is hosted by members in their homes and facilitates closer connections among AGPS members. Our annual party each fall is also a great time to meet new people and visit with friends and colleagues.
Members of AGPS receive regular mailings of The Voice: The Newsletter of the Austin Group Psychotherapy Society. The Voice contains clinical articles, interviews with guest presenters, society information, and an extensive listing of psychotherapy groups led by our members.
As a society, we are committed to the promotion of group work as a powerful therapy for psychological change.
