Education & Training

Advancing opportunities for education and training among current and future
psychotherapy practitioners, supervisors, teachers, and researchers.

Mission

Within the Division’s organizational structure, the Education and Training Domain is home to the

  • Education and Training Committee (Chair: Stewart Cooper),
  • Continuing Education Committee (Chair: Tony Rousmaniere), and
  • Student Development Committee (Chair: Maria Lauer).

Across these committees, the Education and Training domain works to enhance psychotherapy education by promoting dialogue about how to optimally implement and assess psychotherapy teaching and learning, identifying relevant priorities, and disseminating content on emerging ideas and trends.

To that end, the domain provides regular articles in Psychotherapy Bulletin as well as additional information and opportunity for enrichment via the APA Division 29 website.

Students should be sure to visit the Student Portal to get familiar with resources available and advise us of additional content you may need.

For those already in the workforce, please be sure to regularly visit the SAP homepage for announcements regarding continuing education webinars and other events.
