SANDAPT is the San Diego Chapter of the non-profit Association for Psychological Type International (APTi), a volunteer-run 501(c)(3) that promotes learning and ethical use of psychological type. SANDAPT was established in 2003 by Patrick Kerwin and a small group of dedicated Type enthusiasts who wanted to create a local learning and networking forum for fellow fans.

We present six Type-related workshops each year on Saturday mornings, typically in January, March, April, June, September and November, with each workshop running 3 hours. These programs provide a fun forum for those wishing to brush up on their MBTI® (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®) interpretation skills and stay current with their Type theory knowledge, while learning new ways for using Type to enhance professional and personal interactions.

CEUs: We strive to obtain approval for both MBTI® Master Practitioner and NBCC (National Board for Certified Counselors) continuing education credits for all of our workshops. Receiving approval is not guaranteed, however, as it depends on the content of the presentation and the speaker's credentials.

Membership: If you're interested in Type or the MBTI®, join SANDAPT and get free admission to all six morning workshops in a year! Or try attending one of our workshops -- you'll enjoy opportunities to "talk Type" with fellow enthusiasts and network around common interests.
