About Us background and philosophy

EGPS testimonial
EGPS has always had something for me, through all the stages of my career, thus far. I came for the training program, continue to develop at the Conference, Spring Event, and Professional Discussion Groups, and keep coming back for an organization that is filled with extraordinarily smart and nice people.Neal


Eastern Group Psychotherapy Society Mission Statement (2022)

The Eastern Group Psychotherapy Society (EGPS), an affiliate of the American Group Psychotherapy Association, is a multidisciplinary, multicultural, multiracial, professional organization. We advance group approaches to the delivery of human services through training, community, scholarship, and advocacy. Recognizing that multiple communities have been marginalized and unjustly treated, including within our professions, EGPS aspires to be intentionally anti-oppressive to all people.

EGPS Vision Statement (2022)

Our vision for the future is that group therapy and group processes will be widely recognized as powerfully effective and accessible means of individual and societal healing. We envision a world where more practitioners have access to quality group training that recognizes significant aspects of personal identity (including, but not limited to race, skin color, ethnicity, spiritual practices, gender identity, sexual orientation, immigration status, age, body-ability, neurodiversity), and their impact on a person’s well-being, relationships, and positionality.
