This multi-disciplinary organization includes psychologists, clinical social workers, psychiatrists, counselors, students, and other mental health professionals who believe more than ever that the unique dynamic of group psychotherapy offers a cost-effective kind of continuity and connection, which is essential to the therapeutic experience.  Many managed care companies are requiring that group therapists be certified by the National Registry of Certified Group Psychotherapists.  LGPS has been active in providing workshops to meet core course requirements for this certification.  To this end, we have also promoted the development of study groups in the Baton Rouge, New Orleans, and Lafayette areas and are eager to be of use in establishing such groups in other parts of the state.  Because Arkansas and Mississippi do not have their own chapter affiliates of AGPA, we have also drawn clinicians from these areas to our educational offerings and to our work with the national office.
