Lorraine Wodiska, PhD, ABPP, CGP, FAGPA

This year, most of us, have conducted therapy groups online. There is a layered challenge to working with nonverbal communication when conducting groups in this new venue. This 8-session online Institute will offer information about ways to work with the affective information about self and others when tied to screen technology rather than in-person groups. Dr. Wodiska will focus on concepts on connecting nonverbal communication and Polyvagal Theory to deepen the work of the group members. Registrants are required to attend all eight sessions. CE credits will not be awarded to registrants who miss sessions.

12 CE Credits available at $240 for members/ $480 for nonmembers (Login required for member pricing).

Sunday, May 16, 2021, 8:00-9:30PM (Eastern) *Please be cognizant of applicable time zones

Arthur 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.

Participation for members is free. Participation for nonmembers is $60.00. 1.5 CE credits are available at $30 for members or $60.00 for nonmembers.

Andrew P. Pojman, EdD, CGP, FAGPA

Adolescence is an exciting and challenging time of development. Success as a group psychotherapist with this population requires courage, knowledge, humor, and creativity. Using our own group process, we will explore our own adolescence and its impact on our work as clinicians. Experiential experiences will be anchored with didactic presentations on adolescent development, attachment, and group theory. Participants will gain a better understanding of their adolescent-self and its impact on the group. Registrants are required to attend all eight sessions. CE credits will not be awarded to registrants who miss sessions.

12 CE Credits available at $240 for members/ $480 for nonmembers. This event is not recorded.

Sunday, July 18, 2021, 8:00-9:30PM (Eastern) *Please be cognizant of applicable time zones

Jonathan Stillerman, PhD, CGP

We’ve come a long way from the classical analytic mandate that psychotherapists serve as blank screens for their patients’ projections.

Webinar: The Leader's Evolving Psychology and Its impact in Group

Sunday, August 15, 2021, 8:00-9:30PM (Eastern) *Please be cognizant of applicable time zones

Richard Billow, PhD, CGP, Chair; Bonnie Buchele, PhD, ABPP, CGP, DLFAGPA; Gila Ofer, PhD

Billow has asserted that "It is all about me"--meaning that the therapist remains a central group preoccupation.  Complicating matters, the therapist does not remain impassive, and responds in tone, manner, gesture, even when relatively (or absolutely) silent, evolving along with the group and affecting its dynamic processes.  What does this say about intersubjectivity?  About what will take place during our brief presentation?.

Participation for members is free. Participation for nonmembers is $60.00. 1.5 CE credits are available at $30 for members or $60.00 for nonmembers.
