Events 

Come and join one of our events!  AGPS events are a great way to network and connect with colleagues,  participate in formal experiential training, and take part in informal professional development opportunities.  We welcome therapists at all levels of experience at our events – from graduate students and trainees to seasoned therapists.  You do NOT need to be a member of AGPS to attend most events and trainings; however, as a member, you can take advantage of special pricing discounts and access exclusive members-only events.
