American Society for Bonding Psychotherapy

T he American Society for Bonding Psychotherapy (ASBP), the official organization of Bonding Psychotherapy, is a community of professionals and lay-persons interested in the research, promotion, and preservation of this unique method of psychotherapy. Membership in ASBP is open to all. It has been in existence for over 30 years, (formerly as the New Identity Process) and decided to change its name in 2001 to Bonding Psychotherapy, along with the International and European Societies, to more accurately describe the psychotherapeutic method.

You will find links to therapists who have been trained and certified to lead and facilitate Bonding Psychotherapy groups and workshops, as well as profiles about each therapist. You will also find a listing of events, workshops, ongoing groups, and meetings. If you want to become a member, please see the link to membership. We offer training for licensed therapists who would like to learn more about Bonding Psychotherapy.
