As the only professional society of mental health professionals devoted exclusively to advocating for the needs of teenagers, now is an exciting time to renew membership or join ASAP.

2015 Winter Newsletter

In 1970, ASAP in its third year, held its first joint/international conference in Buenos Aires.

2013 Summer Newsletter

With spring ending and summer upon us I hope everyone has had an enjoyable year thus far. Spring represents that time of year when there is growth, renewal, beginnings, and moving forward. It is a perfect analogy, as ASAP is evolving to remain a viable entity able to serve and represent at the national level those clinicians whose primary or exclusive client base is adolescents. Our growth is targeted at expanding physician membership and increasing the breadth of our membership to other disc...

Novel Developments in adolescent psychopharmacology as well as updated DSM-5 diagnostic criteria behoove all psychiatrists...

It is with great enthusiasm that I extend my greetings to all members of the American Society for Adolescent Psychiatry. The organization, devoted solely to the advancement of the Profession of Adolescent Psychiatry, is now in its 45th year of operation. At this moment, I would especially like to thank Dr. Dean DeCrise for his extraordinary leadership, service and many accomplishments during this past year as President of the Society.
