Psychology and Complementary Therapies

This interest group is concerned with developing and nurturing professional links between psychologists and professional practitioners and researchers working in the field of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM).

The broad aim of the interest group is to advance the interests of the profession of psychology generally, and APS members in particular, by active and productive communication with members of the Complementary and Alternative Medicine profession.

The interest group recognized that Complementary and Alternative Medicine is presently the most rapidly growing area of medicine both in Australia and globally and, like mainstream western medicine, has overlapping areas of interest and professional activity with psychologists.
