Welcome to APTC.org

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.
