Losing our Balance as Group Therapists:

How Batman and Pogo can Help Us Regain It

Presented by Joe Shay, PD, CGP, FAGPA

Have you ever had a group member get very angry with you? Have you ever felt very angry with a group member? What does the therapist do in such situations? When is it better to be real and self-disclose your reaction, even if it’s harsh? Or to be silent while you collect yourself? Or use theory to explain what you think is happening? Or invite the group to be curious or to share their reactions? Or even to stop running groups?

And what if the group member is already carrying a strike against them such as having committed a sex offense, or been a serial philanderer, or voted for a candidate for office whom you abhor? How does this factor into your clinical decision at that moment?

Dr. Joseph Shay will try to address these issues by using videos, self-disclosure, and also a little theory, so no one wants to quit their job.

Hosted by Suzanne Cohen, EdD, CGP in Newton, MA
