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.
