Abuse of Power in Groups: Leadership, Followership, and Protective Factors REGISTER ME!
Presented by Sasha Watkins, M.A., LMHC, CPRP
Current world events offer a plethora of examples of the destructive power of groups. What are the alternatives? Reflecting on the work by Stanley Milgram (obedience to authority) and Zimbardo's work (Stanford Prison experiment), as well as own clinical and professional practice, Dr. Pepper and Sasha discuss factors and leadership interventions that can protect therapeutic groups from the re-enactments of the abuse of power found in larger groups, such as organizations and societies.

Group as Experience, Group as Intervention
Presented by Jeff Brand, Psy.D
In groups, people can learn experientially about their particular problems in relationships. We want them to be themselves… or at least until doing so threatens to alienate their connections. Different theories have different philosophies and this talk will explore different ideas about when to let people learn experientially and when to intervene.
