    Principles of Group Psychotherapy

    Does the thought of running a group intimidate you? Would you like to:

    •    brush up on the basics?

    •    deepen fundamentals?

    •    build your confidence as a group leader?
    •    connect with other students and experienced NSGP faculty?

    ​We might have just what you need. Whether groups make you nervous, curious, excited or confused, the NSGP’s Principles of Group Psychotherapy Course can help sharpen your leadership skills and take your group to the next level! 

    This 6-module course, which meets the didactic requirements for CGP certification, will meet monthly on Saturdays from 9:30 AM to 1 PM from January through May. The course also provides an excellent opportunity to connect with others who are interested in (or maybe even have a passion for) group therapy.

    'Refer a New Member' Benefit

    We have an incentive for our current members to bring in new members.

    If a current member refers someone for membership, and the person enrolls as a member (by the end of the Conference) then the current member may attend the Sunday Day-Long Demonstration Group at no cost.

    By registering for this conference, you agree to the following:

    Effective group therapy training is best facilitated by both participation in a group led by experts and study of the resulting group process. While NSGP provides training groups rather than therapy groups, the experience can lead to difficult or uncomfortable feelings in the participants. Because they involve group participation, you should not register for an Experience Group or volunteer for the Demonstration Group if you prefer to avoid this risk. By registering or volunteering you acknowledge that you have been informed of this risk and consent to participate.
