September e-Learning Event
Join Dr. Giorgio Tasca on September 15 at 8:00-9:30 pm (Eastern) as he discusses "Group Psychodynamic Interpersonal Psychotherapy."
The webinar will present the basics of an empirically tested model of group psychotherapy developed by the presenter: "Group Psychodynamic Interpersonal Psychotherapy." The treatment approach uses psychodynamic, interpersonal and attachment theories to conceptualize client problems. A case formulation approach to understand client problems will be described, as well as a description of stages of group treatment based on the theoretical model. Clinical vignettes will be used to illustrate the practice points of this approach.
This event is complimentary for AGPA Members. 1.5 CE credits are available at $30.00 for AGPA members. Participation and 1.5 CE credits are $60.00 for nonmembers. Click here to register.
