We are committed to

  • recognising the impact of the political dimension on the client-therapist relationship
  • developing ideas about how social, economic, political, ecological and cultural issues can be integrated into theory and practice
  • identifying and challenging adverse discrimination at all levels within our profession and in the wider world
  • generating action, launching campaigns, and seeking to influence political processes
