Responsible for promoting and supporting the development and practice of group psychotherapy. This committee offers events related to current practice issues, coordinates the Consultation Benefit Program, and oversees and monitors the group list on the NSGP website.
Upcoming Practice Development EventsEach year, the NSGP Practice Development Committee offers ongoing, informal gatherings in order to educate our community of clinicians and to provide up to date information on all things that affect our practice. Our short format programs are cost effective and don’t interfere with work or play. They are a great way to connect with other clinicians and learn from local experts. Our events are open to NSGP members and non-members. We encourage all who are interested in growing a healthy and successful practice to attend. Check back often for a schedule of upcoming events.
We look forward to seeing you at our next event.
Developing Emotional Immediacy in the Zoom Room
Sunday, February 7, 2021
4:00-6:00 pm on Zoom
$50 members, $60 nonmembers
For many of us, zoom has been our ” ventilator” for our social world and for the way group and individual therapy have been conducted during this pandemic. While group principles remain the same, under stressful conditions, the group therapist and group have had to navigate a new environment that can, at any moment, divert or progress the emotional communication. How can we optimize the experience to create authenticity and intimacy?
During this workshop we will discuss how we might develop emotional immediacy in the group followed by a demonstration group and discussion.
