MAGPS Annual Membership 2017 

MAGPS has been providing education, training, support and collegiality for professionals involved in the group psychotherapies since 1957. The support of our members allows us to continue to offer cutting edge training in group therapy, and to provide a variety of services to both the professional and non-professional community. We welcome as members group therapists at all levels of experience – from students and trainees to master therapists. 

Open to group therapists in the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia & Puerto Rico. Only members are eligible to be listed in the group therapist directory, which is one of the best ways to publicize the groups that you offer. Members also receive early notification of and discounts on our various educational and networking opportunities.

Our membership year runs from January 1 through December 31.
