Branding of your practice and regard as an informed, relevant, and effective professional among your peers

Have you ever wanted to integrate new modalities of treatment such as trauma, neuroscience, or mindfulness, into your practice, but felt unable to do so because there was no available means to get the training?

Have you wished that someone would objectively screen and qualify conferences and workshops before you spent your time and money on ones that were boring, unhelpful, didn’t help you develop your practice, or lead to any further certification or credentialing?

Have you grown weary of having to explain to patients and others how you are different from other mental health professionals?

As psychotherapists ourselves, we know how you feel. We understand the dilemma we all face in maintaining relevance, integrating the latest research, expanding our knowledge base, and developing our skills. This requires cost-effective CEU’s with experts and authors who have not only extensive knowledge but are also active clinicians with real life practical experience. The American College of Psychotherapy has assembled a multidisciplinary group of professionals, authors, and experts, who can train you in psychotherapeutic interventions as well as a variety of specialties.  These skills will enable you to:

Design Your Professional Future

Define and Protect Your Professional Identity

Develop Knowledge, Skills, and Expertise

Distinguish Yourself from Other professionals
