Group therapy was recently recognized as a specialty by APA. This is a major accomplishment and took hundreds of hours of work by a dedicated committee, made up of members from APA and AGPA. It was truly a fantastic accomplishment, with myriad implications for group. Thanks go to all the committee, but particularly to the leadership of Nina Brown and the legacy of Sally Barlow who spent many years laying the groundwork.
