American Academy of Psychotherapists…

 

Ellis, Jules Barron, Henry Guze, and Milton V. Kline organized the American Academy of Psychotherapists (AAP) in 1955. They formed the Academy to bring various professionals in psychotherapy together to share research and ideas, and facilitate high standards of training for the benefit of the public.

The Academy arranged conferences and symposia on a variety of topics. In addition, it sponsored research projects and assisted in the publishing of research papers and books on psychotherapy.

Below are documents outlining the aims, membership requirements, report of the first annual conference, and the first newsletter of the Academy. I have also included correspondence between Ellis and Carl Rogers.
