AMCAP members are united by a commitment to the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Members who are richly diverse in their geographic location, professional training, age, gender, and specialty come together to edify one another in a spirit of brotherhood and an atmosphere of faith.
The "counselors and psychotherapists" who make up AMCAP come together to share strategies for helping those in their care who struggle with depression, marital conflicts, family disruption, and other problems. Through person-to-person networking, semi-annual conventions, AMCAP publications, and now the website, AMCAP members strengthen one another in their capacity to help the struggling and downhearted.
NETWORKING AND OUTREACH
The spirit of friendship and fellowship, the desire to learn from one another, and the impulse to share treasures of knowledge has always motivated AMCAP members to assemble and to communicate with others. Beginning with informal office meetings; growing to the stature of a professional organization and a published journal; and now through the internet expanding its reach to the world, AMCAP seeks to make a positive difference for good - both for its members, and for those outside its membership.
RESEARCH, THEORY AND PUBLICATION
In their commitment to spiritual and professional excellence, AMCAP therapists seek to be informed in their practices by theories consistent with revealed truth, and by solid research undergirding their chosen clinical strategies. In their analysis and investigations, in their insights and interventions, they seek to share their findings, that the benefit of their labors may be extended to others. The AMCAP Journal, the AMCAP Networker, semi-annual conventions, convention tapes and reports, and area networks are among the means utilized to facilitate that sharing of the gospel-based clinical treasures that have developed steadily over AMCAP's history.
