CAPS is a vibrant Christian organization with a rich tradition. Founded in 1956 by a small group of Christian mental health professionals, CAPS has grown to more than 2000 members in the U.S., Canada and more than 25 other countries.
CAPS encourages in depth consideration of therapeutic, research, theoretical and theological issues. The association is a forum for creative new ideas. In fact, our publications and conferences are the birthplace for many of the formative concepts in our field today.
CAPS members represent a variety of denominations, professional groups and theoretical orientations; yet are united in their commitment to Christ and to professional excellence.
CAPS is a non-profit, member supported organization. It is led by a board of directors and the membership has a voice in the direction of CAPS.
CAPS is more than a professional association. It is a fellowship, and in addition to national activities, the organization strongly encourages local area activities which provide networking and fellowship opportunities as well as professional enrichment.
