Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are a vibrant forum for ADAA members with a common interest, such as a particular disorder, treatment, or population. SIGs encourage collaboration, communication, education, research, mentoring, and networking focused on anxiety, depression and co-occurring disorders. 


SIGs meet virtually and in person at the annual conference. SIG members are encouraged to propose conference symposia and workshops, topics for public or professional education webinars, or web content. Any program suggestions must be vetted and approved by ADAA committees (such as the Professional Education Committee, the Conference Committee or the Public Education Committee).

Peer Consultations

Many SIGs hold monthly online peer consultation groups. The goal is to provide a safe and confidential forum for SIG members to discuss cases, collaborate, and share resources. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn from your colleagues and build an online community of like-minded therapists. Peer consultation is a member benefit offered at no cost.


SIGs are ADAA committees and are expected to act in support of the organization’s mission. Please view the ADAA SIG Guidelines to learn more about responsibilities and expectations.
