Registration information, learning objectives, and references for the events listed below will be posted to the AGPA e-Learning Library approximately 1-2 months prior to each event date.

August 2021

Online Institute: Process Group Experience

Saturday and Sunday, August 7 and 8, 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM & 3:00 – 6:00 PM (Eastern) *Please be cognizant of applicable time zones

Joseph Shay, PhD, CGP, LFAGPA

For the group therapist, self-awareness is crucial if not indispensable to the deepest group work.  In this Process Group Experience, members will have the opportunity to learn more about themselves, to learn about the characteristic lens through which they view others but one which may lay just out of their awareness.

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

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

We will meet at the juncture of our intersecting psychologies, and whatever takes place will be partially a reflection of the leader's psychology (actual and imagined). Some of the emergent will reach words during our brief session, some will be sequestered in unspoken thought and fantasy, and some will appear in day and night dreams; the remainder, unbounded, will float in internal and electronic space. The brief session offers the invitation for attendees to present something of themselves and issues in their groups.

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.

September 2021

Webinar: The Nuts and Bolts of Groups that Thrive 

Sunday, September 19, 2021, 8:00-9:30PM (Eastern) *Please be cognizant of applicable time zones

Ann Steiner, PhD, CGP, FAGPA

This training addresses the importance of screening, preparation, awareness and sensitivity to history, socio-cultural location, privilege and unconscious biases of leaders and members. The different types of groups, group agreements, common challenges, as well as the design and maintenance of effective in-person and online psychotherapy groups, will also be addressed.

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.

October 2021

Webinar: Systems-Centered Therapy: Seeing the System, Not Just People: Commemorating the Work of Yvonne Agazarian

Sunday, October 24, 2021, 1:00-2:30PM (Eastern) *Please be cognizant of applicable time zones

Susan Gantt, PhD, ABPP, CGP, DFAGPA, FAPA, Chair; Frances Carter, MSS, LSW; Dorothy Gibbons, MSS, LCSW, CGP; Ray Haddock, Robert Hartford, LICSW, CGP

Agazarian, both theoretician and clinician, developed systems-centered therapy (SCT), putting systems concepts into group therapy. Her revolutionary method, functional subgrouping, enables groups to integrate differences instead of scapegoating them or creating identified patients. Highlighting her ideas, we will illustrate their practice in a brief demo group with experienced members. 

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.

November 2021

Webinar: Queer and Transgender Clinicians on Therapist Self-Disclosure

Sunday, November 21, 2021, 8:00-9:30PM (Eastern) *Please be cognizant of applicable time zones

Sarah Tyerman, MA; Joe Wise, MD, CGP; Kat Zwick, MA, LPCC, C-DBT, CGP

As queer, trans, and non-binary individuals become more visible in our society and our groups, therapists may want to consider whether, and if so how, to disclose their own positions to clients. A panel of LGBTQ+ therapists will open the dialogue by sharing their experiences and offering differing theoretical approaches regarding self-disclosure. 

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.
