CPA Regions

Why CPA?

Clinicians, academics, students, and persons working in related fields join the Catholic Psychotherapy Association for many reasons. CPA is driven by our Mission to serve our members, and our members contribute to the fulfillment of our Mission in many ways. 

CARA Ecclesial Regions

In the interest of strengthening the CPA network within its membership, within those who support our mission, and to more closely collaborate with the US Catholic Bishops, the CPA has established a network of representatives organized by ecclesial (CARA) region. 

Below is a current list of the CPA Regional Representatives. Please note that we welcome multiple reps in a region as that will promote the networking and reps in different locations and/or with different backgrounds i.e. clinical, academic etc. bring different contacts to the network.
