Welcome to SEPI

The Society for the Exploration of Psychotherapy Integration (SEPI) is an international, interdisciplinary organization. Our aim is to promote the development of psychotherapies that integrate theoretical orientations, clinical practices, and diverse methods of inquiry.
SEPI brings practitioners and researchers together to an unprecedented degree. Effective psychotherapies must be rooted in both clinical and empirical exploration and therefore we facilitate collaboration between practitioner  and researcher; we 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 an international and multicultural organization, representing perspectives from around the world. We welcome and highly value the participation of members from diverse cultures, regions, countries, racial/ethnic backgrounds, and religions.

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:
