Welcome to the website for the World Association for Person Centered & Experiential Psychotherapy & Counseling.

Here you will find information about person-centered and experiential psychotherapies, how to become a member of the organization, our biennial conferences, and the PCEP Journal, now also accessible online to members.

If you have any questions, please contact us.

When you are registered as an Organizational Member with WAPCEPC we store two records on our website: the Organization itself, and the Individual who is (at that time) responsible for administrating that organization's membership. This is because an individual may one year be managing an organizational  member's account, but the next year someone else is. Access to the Organization's details - for example to change the postal address - is done through the personal account of the Individual in charge of administering them. This allows that individual to also separately be a member of WAPCEPC (as an Individual or Couple member) and enjoy the benefits of that. Both memberships can be managed by the individual through their personal account (see below).

As a result, the login and renewal process for Organizational Members is different to other members.

How to view your organization details

  1. Log into the website with your personal username and password. If you have any problems with logging in, please have a look at our Sign-up Help page or contact us for further advice.
  2. You are now logged in with your personal account. Click on 'My Membership' in the left hand sidebar.

How to change the administrator for your organization

If you are no longer the administrator for your organization and would like to allow someone else to manage the organization, please contact WAPCEPC. If the new administrator has an existing personal membership of WAPCEPC (as an Individual or Couple member) then they do not need to create a new website account - so simply contact WAPCEPC and we can update our records.

The Donor Funds offer additional financial assistance to qualified persons and organizations. We welcome contributions from individual members and organizational members to help us make the WAPCEPC more accessible to colleagues who do not have  the economic resources to join the Association.

The Association already offers membership at a reduced rate for members in countries of World Bank Economic Categories "Low income", "Lower middle income" and "Upper middle income" but without the donor funds we are unable to do more than that since we are working with a very small annual budget. We know of many colleagues from Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe who would like to become members and who want to contribute to enrich our world community, but who lack the economic resources to join, even with the reduced membership dues.

There are two donor funds.

The original donor fund for individuals, offers a free individual membership to colleagues from these parts of the world, for a period of 2 years. Click here to make a contribution.
The donor fund for organizations offers a contribution of 50% towards the already discounted organizational membership fee for organizations based in these regions. This support is also available for two years. Click here to make a contribution.

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO KEEP THE DONOR FUND GOING!
