Mid-Atlantic Group Psychotherapy Society
The Mid-Atlantic Group Psychotherapy Society (MAGPS) is a regional affiliate of the American Group Psychotherapy Association that serves group therapists in Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia.
MAGPS hosts two annual conferences, one in the fall and one in the spring. These conferences are designed to bring together members of our community who are interested in coming together to learn about group therapy and group dynamics in a warm, collegial environment.
Scholarships are available for students and first-time attendees.
Scholarships cover all conference registration fees and include one-year of free MAGPS membership.
MAGPS conferences are intended for trainees and practitioners in psychiatry, psychology, social work and other mental health disciplines. Conferences offer both didactic and experiential learning experiences to deepen attendees' understanding of topical content in preparation for introducing the gained knowledge into their group therapy work. Attendees do not need to be actively participating group therapy, or live/work in the Mid-Atlantic region.
