I'm Having Trouble with My Small Group: Reflections on a Lifetime of Living, Leading, and Learning in Groups
Instructor: Elizabeth Knight, MSW, CGP, DFAGPA
This session will focus on the ubiquity and vital importance of groups in our lives - family, work, sports, school, and of course, therapy groups. The emphasis will be on how understanding how we interact with others leads us to "The Healing Power of Groups in a Fragmented World" - this year's AGPA Connect theme. Personal experiences will be shared and references made to both the Tavistock and Psychodynamic models of group.
