APTC Bulletin: Psychology Education & Training (PET)

The APTC newsletter is published tri-annually, published in February, June, and October

Welcome to APTC.org

SEPTEMBER 2020 NOTE:  The public is welcome and encouraged to provide commentary on the INTERNATIONAL GUIDELINES FOR PSYCHOLOGY TRAINING CLINICS that are being developed by our allied organization, the International Association of Psychology Training Clinics.  

Also, we are making our Assessment Working Group's guidance on assessment training during COVID-19 publicly available at this time.   

The Association of Psychology Training Clinics (APTC) is the national organization for directors of psychology training clinics. Its members are directors of clinics that are typically associated with pre-doctoral graduate training programs in professional psychology clinical, community, counseling, clinical child, and school psychology at regionally accredited universities.

Our organizations mission is to support and represent the interests of our member directors and their clinics. This website is an important vehicle for support and communication among members. Registered members have access to:

  • Clinic manuals and other administrative documents from a representative range of clinics
  • Intake forms, consent forms, and other templates for clinical documentation
  • APTC membership directory and list of mentors for new clinic directors
  • Guidelines for Psychology Training Clinics
  • Upcoming Events
  • Photos, slides, and handouts from past meetings.
  • And many other resources that you may find helpful in directing your clinic.

To join, click on the "Join" tab above, provide the requested information, and after you do so, we will approve your request to join. Then, you will be alerted to log in to pay dues and access all of our member benefits. Dues are $200 annually, payable through this website or by mailing a check. Dues cover the September - August fiscal year. Dues increase to $250 (which includes a $50 late fee) after December 31st.

Please note that the above dues information applies to current/previous members. NEW members who wish to join late in the year (after March) are welcome to join at a reduced rate of $75.

The Association of Psychology Training Clinics (APTC) is dedicated to furthering cultural awareness, competency, and humility through supportive learning opportunities and environments. We are committed to engaging in training activities which increase an understanding of individual and cultural diversity, and focus on the interplay between contextual factors and intersectionality among all people.  We respect and celebrate awareness, appreciation, and sensitivity toward all and encourage an appreciation of how political, economic, and societal influences affect individuals’ behaviors, particularly those from disadvantaged and marginalized groups.

APTC STATEMENT ON ANTI-RACISM

The Association of Psychology Training Clinics condemns the nation’s centuries-old system of racial oppression and violence, which has resulted in generations of social, political and economic inequity and despair. APTC mourns the killings of Black children, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, friends and neighbors, including Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Riah Milton, Dominique “Rem’Mie” Fells, and Tamir Rice by police officers and others who seek to erase, dominate, and control Black lives.

APTC  recognizes the role that the discipline of psychology has had in perpetuating these systems of oppression, and our own privilege and responsibility as psychologists and academics to do more to create a world that is just and equitable. APTC commits to the continued work of dismantling these systems of oppression within our own curricula, research, training and service efforts; supporting student, faculty and community initiatives to right the wrongs inflicted on our local Black communities; and engaging in personal and organizational reflection and inventory to determine next steps to help make a more just world.

As trainers and leaders, we are all responsible for creating and sustaining social justice and equity in our communities. We do this by encouraging the recruitment, retention and professional development of Black and Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) among our students, faculty colleagues and fellow directors; and by providing valuable and culturally sensitive and relevant clinical services, education and advocacy for and in collaboration with our local BIPOC communities.

In pursuing these commitments, APTC will continue working to provide an updated listing of Diversity and Social Justice-related resources accessible to all members.  As has been a consistent theme in our annual conferences and professional activities, the Fall 2020 APTC Bulletin will focus specifically on Social Justice-related efforts and activities of APTC members. APTC membership will also be queried about individual and collective efforts, so that we can crowd-source the best ideas for action. Other member suggestions for next steps are solicited and welcomed.
