Our Mission


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

  • Elevating standards of practice and training in group psychotherapy across clinical disciplines and places of work

  • Disseminating information about the power of group psychotherapy in clinical communities and our broader social contexts

  • Providing a rich network of peer support and mentorship with the goal of creating a safe and supportive professional home for group practitioners

  • Offering continuing education in group psychotherapy through conferences and other offerings focused on a range of topics relevant to practicing professionals

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. We are inclusive of all social identities and clinical disciplines.
