Oona Metz, Amy Matias, Christine Boie, Barb Schmitz, Judi Garland, Joyce Collier (seated)

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.

Each 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.

Equity Rate: Pay what you can

This workshop is meant to spark discussion about stereotyping as a bias in perception. As an attendee, you will be challenged to process how you see yourself, how others in the world see you, and how you want to be seen. You will reflect on the impact of others’ perceptions and misperceptions on you. You will explore how your misperceptions can impact others. You will brainstorm ways to use these insights to make changes in your practice to more fully see those in your life, personally and professionally.
