Research Library

Welcome To


American Academy of Psychotherapists

Research Reference Library


What began as a discussion group in early 2010 soon evolved to the Research and Advancement of Psychotherapy Committee of the American Academy of Psychotherapists.  One contribution of this committee has been this Research Reference Library.  A particular focus of the library is material that illuminates the current controversy over effectiveness research and evidence supportive of experiential, depth and/or psychodynamic psychotherapy.

We welcome suggested additions to this library from Academy members and non-members.  Please send an email to and put “Research Library” in the subject line.
