types of membership

The United States Association for Body Psychotherapy was founded in 1996 as an umbrella organization for the emerging profession of body psychotherapy.

Our dual mission is to advance the field of somatic psychology and to assist our members in getting their work out into the world.

Thus we represent not just individual members like you but also various institutional organizations as we advocate for our field on a national stage. And we nurture promising students through their education, training and licensing.
