The ACP recently changed its name from the ACCP (Australian College of Clinical Psychologists). The College was formed in 1980 and is devoted to supporting the development of practicing psychologists in Australia. It was the first support group for psychologists to advocate a model of peer support and continual professional development. It was also the first group to use the term "clinical psychologist" which, until recently, was used to define all qualified psychologists who practiced in a clinical setting (distinct from research psychologists).
The ACP is particularly committed to the development and assistance of students who intend on undertaking a career in therapeutic psychology. Members of the College provide supervision, guidance and support. Contact your nearest branch to discover the breadth of knowledge, experience and support in your local area. Members of the College enjoy a range of training opportunities in the form of workshops, courses and guest speakers, both local and interstate.
