CSP Membership Information

General information on Membership

Membership in Center for Studies of the Person provides the identification, recognition and sense of value that comes from:

  • Being affiliated/associated with Center for Studies of the Person
  • Contributing to the accomplishment of its goals and supporting its activities
  • Being a part of a larger movement to support and promote the spread of Person Centered Approach (PCA) practice around the world
  • Having a sense of connection with the PCA movement that is bigger than what you have by yourself

There are two categories of membership:

  • Full members take on a higher level of commitment to supporting CSP in the achievement of its objectives. They are the core of our community.
  • Associate members also support CSP, but at a lower level of commitment than full membership. They are an important part of our community.

Members who are not physically able to attend Center for Studies of the Person events can support CSP’s objectives through their activities and way of being in the world, wherever they are located.

We encourage those who are interested in learning more about becoming a full member of CSP to get to know us or our members by:

  • Coming to our monthly meetings in person or via Skype.
  • Attending one of our programs or events, such as the Annual Carl Rogers Conference or the La Jolla Program.
  • Attending an international Forum or a Person Centered Approach meeting or conference.
  • Contacting one of our members directly and initiating a dialogue about your interest in Center for Studies of the Person. That member will be able to guide you through the membership process

Those who are interested in Associate Membership can apply by filling in the membership application form Apply here . You will need to create an account in our store/site if you have not already done so, to complete the application process.

If you want to support CSP, but are not interested in becoming a member, you can do so by becoming a CSP Contributor.

      • Donations
    • We have recently opened up a new membership category - that of Contributing Members, to recognize people who support us by donating money to help fund the Center and its activities.
      • To simplify the process, we have set up a Donations form to capture donor information and allow donations to be made using a credit card through PayPal. Donate Here
      • If donors choose, they can designate on the donations form the CSP activity or project to which they would like their grant to apply.
      • We will provide donors with an electronic receipt acknowledging the date(s)and amount of the donation for taxation purposes.
