Our Mission

The Mid-Atlantic Group Psychotherapy Society (MAGPS) is a multi-disciplinary organization that offers members the opportunity for professional growth to expand their scope of clinical practice and to network with other group therapists. We believe strongly in the efficacy and viability of group therapy as a primary modality of psychological treatment and emotional support. The society is committed to:

    • Elevating standards of practice and training in group psychotherapy
    • Sponsoring activities and opportunities to enhance knowledge and skills in group psychotherapy to the public, local institutions, students, and professionals
    • Disseminating information about group psychotherapy services
    • Providing a network of peer support that serves the professional needs of group practitioners

MAGPS serves as a regional voice specific to the interests of group psychotherapy. Its members provide a wealth of professional, educational, and social support for group psychotherapists in Washington, DC, Virginia, West Virginia, and Maryland. Our members come from many different disciplines, including Psychology, Creative Arts Therapy, Psychiatry, Nursing, Social Work, Alcoholism Counseling, and Marriage and Family Therapy.
