    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.

    Sunday, March 21, 2021

    12:00 pm - 1:15 pm via Zoom Meeting

    A link to join will be emailed to registrants prior to the event.

    NSGP Diversity & Inclusion Committee 

    Anti-racism Group Circle

    Me & White Supremacy

    (Second Offering)

    Purpose: A group of peers who benefit from white privilege coming together to examine their own internalized racism in order to create a safe, more just and equitable world for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC). Our intention is to provide a reflective space in which we come together in caring to share our truth, work beyond self-gain, and stay committed to asking questions to promote social justice and lifelong change. 

    Statement: We acknowledge that this will be hard and uncomfortable work. We commit to staying engaged with the process because we are driven by our values of equality and social justice. To do this work we will hold conversations that lead to “wise decisions and actions” and uphold the principle of “a leader in every chair.” We will come together as peers, not experts, and we will share our experiences equally, without hierarchy. 

    Who: A group of 10 people (max), open to NSGP Members and Non-Members. 

    Hosts: D & I Committee Members Amy Matias and Joel Krieg

    What: A meeting to work together through the workbook Me & White Supremacy, by Layla Saad, using The Circle Way (http://www.thecircleway.net/resources) as a structure for the group. (Participants will need to obtain a copy of Me & White Supremacy and purchase the Me & White Supremacy Workbook.)  There is not cost for this event.

    When: Mondays 11:00 am to 12:30 pm for 9 sessions starting April 5 and ending June 14, 2021. The group will not meet on April 12 or May 31.
