Joining NASAP

Joining NASAP is as simple as completing the appropriate membership application below and paying your dues. NASAP has several different kinds of memberships because of different needs of its members. Perhaps the hardest part is figuring out what type of membership is best for you. 

Different people have different needs and so we have different types of memberships for different situations. Most of our members are professionals of one type or another (counselors, psychologists, coaches, teachers, professors,social workers, etc.) and so will choose to be Professional Members of NASAP.  Some of our members are retired and on fixed income and so we have a reduced rate for our Retired Members.  Some households have more than one member and don't want duplicate copies of the Journal, and so we have a Family Members. Some of our members are full time students and are also on a fixed or limited income and so we have a reduced rate for Student Members.  All of these members are General Members of NASAP.

Some people just want to associate with NASAP and take advantage of some of our discounts as well as join in Sections, so we have Associate Members. Associate Members do not vote, cannot hold elected offices, and also do not receive the Journal but they are kept informed with the newsletter and contribute to the purposes of NASAP.

And finally, we have Affiliate Organization Memberships for grass roots organizations that want to associate with NASAP.  Affiliate Organizations need to be chartered or incorporated, need to have By-Laws and also a statement of Purpose. Their applications must be approved by the Board of Directors since they take on such an important role within NASAP. Once approved by the Board of Directors, Affiliate Organizations can offer training and workshops in cooperation with NASAP's Professional Development Committee for continuing education credit through APA and NBCC, following the procedures outlined by the Professional Development Committee.

If you have any difficulty in this area, please call the office at 260-267-8807 or email us at info@alfredadler.org and we will be glad to help you. 

There are three broad categories of members of NASAP:

     General Members (includes Professional, Retired, Student and Family Members)

     Associate Members

     Affiliate Organizations

Different categories have different benefits.

General Membership (Including Professional, Retired, Student* and Family Members) entitles you to the following:

    practice, and applications of Adlerian Psychology. This is a $56.00 savings for those in the US who choose a membership that
    includes the Journal ($68 savings for those in Canada and $77 for those in other countries). Family Members do not get a copy of the Journal of Individual Psychology since they pay a substantially reduced price for membership and it is assumed they will have a copy available to share.

    and its practical applications, including an insert on a contemporary topic. In addition, you will find book reviews, consulting tools,
