History

The American College of Psychotherapy™ was conceived and grew out of a recognition that the clinical practice of mental health counseling has experienced dramatic changes over the past decade. Therapists can no longer rely upon traditional techniques of treatment that have served as the foundation of most practices.  The advent and implementation of neuroscience, integrative health, and psychophysiology has dramatically altered the therapy landscape. Those who fail to recognize the importance without understanding how it can revolutionize the approach to treatment will find themselves out of touch with the current standards of practice.  This results not only in a loss of prestige but also impacts their ability to attract patients in search of clinicians on the forefront of the latest modalities of care.  The American College of Psychotherapy™ was formed to bridge the gap in research and training and to equip clinicians to adhere to the most innovative, evidence-based, practices in psychotherapy.
