Houston Group Psychotherapy Society (HGPS) recognizes that there are times when our members, by virtue of their work, are subjected to intimidation, threat, harassment, derogation and abuse. In an effort to minimize the exposure of our members’ privacy, we have taken steps to limit the information on our website and membership list that will be made public.
We have also developed the following HGPS Safety Policy to support the safety of our membership.
