CAPS Distinctives

  • 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 1200 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.
