Co-Creating Commitments and Engaging Terminations: Questioning our Assumptions about Group Psychotherapy
Sunday, May 16, 2021, 8:00-9:30 PM (Eastern)* Please be cognizant of applicable time zones
Arthur A. Gray, PhD, CGP
Psychoanalytic group psychotherapy is most effective when members are emotionally engaged with each other. This engagement, when co-created by leader and members, facilitates members' commitment to group, and can lead to meaningful terminations. This webinar will offer methods for co-creating an experience, which can enhance each member's sense of self, other, and self-with-other. This event is complimentary for members; 1.5 CE credits are available at $30.00 for members. Access and 1.5 CE credits are $60.00 for nonmembers. (Login required for member pricing.) Register here
Wounded Healers and the Ethical Imperative for Self-Care
Sunday, May 23, 2021, 8:00-9:30PM (Eastern)
Join us for this imaginative and experiential event in which theater uniquely reaches us through the screen, and therapists have the space to consider and discuss the importance of compassion and wellness within the therapist community (Ethics CE is available). Centered around a film viewing of the stage play, Off the Map by contemporary American playwright Joan Ackermann, this webinar’s theatrical and cinematic contexts work to dramatize themes of therapist woundedness. The Group Foundation is presenting this event in collaboration with the Red Well Theater Group and all proceeds benefit the Group Foundation. Register today at https://member.agpa.org/store.
