Welcome to the Society for the Exploration of Psychotherapy Integration (SEPI)

The Society for the Exploration of Psychotherapy Integration (SEPI) is an international, interdisciplinary organization. Our aim is to promote the exploration and development of psychotherapies that integrate theoretical orientation, clinical practice, and diverse methods of inquiry.

SEPI seeks to bring clinicians and researchers together to an unprecedented degree. Effective psychotherapies must be rooted in both clinical and empirical exploration and therefore we do all we can facilitate collaboration between clinician and researcher; we strive to help both learn from each other.

SEPI promotes dialogue between therapists of differing theoretical orientations. We aim to advance an understanding of the sources of therapeutic change and meet the needs of the growing ranks of integrative therapists.

SEPI prides itself on being a multi-cultural organization, representing perspectives from around the world. We welcome and highly value the participation of members from diverse cultures, regions, countries, racial and ethnic backgrounds, and religions.

SEPI is an international organization, and we have members in the following countries: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China,Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of Singapore, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Turkey, United Kingdom, and United States of America.

Join the Discussion 


The SEPI Research Committee has shared an interesting article by SEPI member Lars-Gunner Lundh that seeks to more clearly define and explore the common factors approach to psychotherapy. We thought this article would be of interest to many SEPI members, and might inspire some thoughtful discussion.

Bridging the Psychotherapy
Practice-Research Gap


The first round of findings of the Two-Way Bridge Initiative are now available.

The Two-Way Bridge initiative is a collaboration between the Society of Clinical Psychology (Division 12 of the APA) and the Psychotherapy Division of the APA—Division 29. It is part of an overall effort to bridge the long-standing gap between psychotherapy research and practice, in the true spirit of SEPI.

This initiative provides a way for practicing therapists to be a part of the research process by disseminating their clinical experiences in using various empirically supported treatments, which can hopefully inform future research.

For the survey findings on the use of empirically supported treatments for panic disorder, social anxiety, and OCD, visit: www.stonybrook.edu/twowaybridge.
