In December 2023, PACFA College of Psychotherapy Convenor Ernst Meyer and CEO Johanna de Wever met with Dr Anthony Korner from Australia and New Zealand Association of Psychotherapy (ANZAP) to discuss opportunities for working together more closely in the future.

Established in 1987, ANZAP arose out of the psychotherapy program developed at Westmead Hospital in 1983. ANZAP is a training organisation which fosters the development and growth of psychotherapists who specialise in therapy for people with complex presentations.

PACFA is currently reviewing its Affiliate Organisation category, which will be discussed further at the upcoming PACFA Board meeting in February 2024. We look forward to creating a framework that allows us to work with many more organisations more closely in a variety of ways to best support the advancement of the profession.

ANZAP provides advanced clinical training, supervision, and professional development to mental health and related professionals working within or outside of the publicly funded or subsidised mental health care system. The psychotherapy training program offered by ANZAP is specifically designed to help psychologists, mental health nurses, social workers, general practitioners, psychiatrists and registrars and others to work more effectively with patients/clients and particularly those presenting with significant traumatic histories.
