The Southern California Association of Psychology Training Programs (SCAPTP) is a consortium of Psychology Doctoral Programs and Clinical Training Sites whose mission is to promote excellence in psychology training at all levels. The organization provides opportunities (1) to improve communication, share concerns and problems in training, as well as share best practices between academic programs, training sites, and students (2) to adopt mutual procedures of benefit, and (3) to give input as a group to other organizations (i.e., American Psychological Association, CAPIC, etc.).
