Each year, AAP awards 20-30 need-blind scholarships of $1,200 to advanced graduate students, new clinicians in the first decade of practice, and mid-career psychotherapists who want an intensive introduction to AAP. These one-time scholarships are offered to selected non-members to defray the cost of their conference registration, hotel, meals and travel. Scholarship recipients will attend workshops, and an intensive daily three-hour process group facilitated by AAP leaders.

AAP is dedicated to the personal as well as the professional development of the therapist. Understanding the ways we bring our own complexities into our therapeutic interactions is at the core of the Academy’s mission. We address these interests through a focus on process, interpersonal feedback, and experiential learning. In addition to participating in conferences, AAP members also gather in long-term peer groups that support personal exploration and sharing of different approaches. There are many paths to therapeutic efficacy, all rooted in the person of the therapist. AAP offers a professional home for new and seasoned clinicians alike.

The I&C themed “Borders and Walls: Facing the Other” will take place in Memphis, Tennessee at the Peabody Hotel, November 11-15, 2020.

The scholarship application deadline is July 3rd. Recipients will be notified of their award by July 15th. Please email any questions to the AAP Scholarship Chairs at: aapscholarship@gmail.com.
