ACAP and its partner ICPS, a branch of the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis (BGSP), are educational and mental health resources, empowering individuals and organizations with practical, successful life strategies.
To help build skills for those working with individuals and groups in the areas of interpersonal relationships, crisis resolution, education and mental health issues, and parenting, ACAP serves as a community resource by offering, courses, graduate degrees, clinical programs and experiences, and Continuing Education (CE) opportunities. Read our mission and vision statement.
ACAP pioneered an expansion of studies of the mind and interpersonal relationships over the past three decades, developing new perspectives on how mind/brain/body interactions influence behavior. We have a 20+ year record of developing effective intervention strategy programs for improving teamwork and communication skills in clinical, academic and organizational settings.
ACAP’s partnership with the ICPS enables us to provide these same benefits to a new generation of graduate students seeking advanced training and Masters degrees in Mental Health Counseling, and in Psychoanalysis. Whether a graduate of a degree program or our psychoanalytic certificate program, students are eligible to seek state recognition through licensing and/or certification of their academic achievements.
ACAP is nationally accredited by ABAP, the American Board for Accreditation in Psychoanalysis, and ICPS’ programs are regionally accredited by NECHE, the New England Commission of Higher Education. ACAP graduates are eligible to apply for state licensure or certification in NJ, NY, and VT. ICPS graduates with the Masters in Mental Health Counseling are eligible to apply for state licensure as a Mental Health Counselor in NJ. Contact us for more information.
