    NSGP Breakfast Club 2020/2021

    Squaring the Circle: How to Engage in Straight Talk about Racial-Cultural Events and Microaggressions in Groups

    Presented by Aziza A. B. Platt, PhD

    This interactive presentation will explore how racial-cultural events, including microaggressions, occur and impact in therapy groups. Using examples from group members' experiences and NSGP members offerings, we will collectively explore impediments to straight talk about racial-cultural issues; the dynamics that keep us going in circles; and responding that allows our groups to synthesize instead of spiral.

    Metaphor and Meaning in Group Therapy:

    Expanding our Toolbox

    Presented by Oona Metz, LICSW, CGP, FAGPA

    Group leaders use metaphors and images to increase group cohesion, invoke playfulness, increase understanding, and confront difficult topics in groups. How do we “tune in” to metaphors and then make use of them in the context of a group? This interactive, dynamic workshop offers an opportunity to play with words, language, and concepts, and add a few (metaphoric) tools to your group therapy toolbox.

    Boundary Violations or Mutual Enrichment

    Presented by Charles Glazier, LICSW, CGP

    Combined individual and group treatment for character-disordered clients yielded changes in emotional functioning. The therapist encouraged members to discuss individual therapy in group and vice versa. This “culture of confidence” led boundary changes that challenge our ideas about confidentiality and safety. We will discuss these challenges after the case presentation.

    NSGP Breakfast Club 2020/2021


    Applying group therapy, group dynamics, and organizational dynamics in non-clinical group settings:  expanding our practices

    Presented by Suzanne L. Cohen, Ed.D., CGP, FAGPA

    &  Carl M. Cohen, PhD. Science Management Associates

    We will review the topic of application and the various ways that group and organizational dynamics can be used in non-clinical settings.  We will run a “mini workshop” with participants in the Breakfast Club, showing the use of the group on the Zoom platform, including the use of breakout rooms.  We will close with each participant bringing a case in their own practices that would be a possible area to apply group skills, either in person or remotely.
