Austin Group Psychotherapy Society


About AGPS

The Austin Group Psychotherapy Society (AGPS) is an interdisciplinary organization of psychologists, social workers, counselors, and psychiatrists who share a commitment to continuing professional development and to excellence in the practice of group psychotherapy.

AGPS is an Affiliate of the American Group Psychotherapy Association (AGPA) and 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 our Annual Conferences facilitated by internationally recognized experts in the field of group theory and practice. Additional training by local professionals covers a broad range of topics.

In addition to these training sessions, 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 year is also a great time to meet new people and visit with friends and colleagues.

As a society, we are committed to the promotion of group work as a powerful therapy for psychological change.
