Robert Grossmark, PhD

The unobtrusive relational group analyst has a unique approach to working with phenomena that cannot be put into words. The group leader facilitates healing and transformation by unobtrusively joining the flow of enactments and attending to the ways trauma and history emerge in group interactions.

Sunday, May 19, 2019, 8-9:30 PM (Eastern) *Please be cognizant of applicable time zones

Katie Griffin, MA, LPC, CGP, FAGPA

Group members bring internal templates which, when combined with societal expectations, dictate and restrict the expression of longing, emotional connection, gender identity, and sexual desire. When the group leader helps expand and deepen these internal templates, group members develop more fluidity, breadth of identity, and depth of connection to themselves and others.

Participation for members is free. Participation for nonmembers is $60.00. 1.5 CE credits are available at $22.50 for members or $60.00 for nonmembers.

Sunday, July 21, 2019, 8-9:30PM (Eastern) *Please be cognizant of applicable time zones

Heribert Knott, MD

Supervision groups often experience parallels between the group process (of the supervision group) and the clinical case being presented (the supervised group), enriching the supervision group experience as well as helping the presenter.

The end of medical treatment for cancer can coincide with pressure to get on with the “new normal.” Yet, a crucial part of healing from painful or traumatic experiences is the creation of safe places for survivors to express everything in the presence of others. Kelly Inselmann integrates her Six Principles for Emotional Recovery into group treatment.

Webinar: On Attacking and Being Attacked in Group Psychotherapy

Sunday, December 15, 2019, 8-9:30PM (Eastern) *Please be cognizant of applicable time zones

Aaron Black, PhD, CGP

Verbal attacking is an inevitable and sometimes destructive process in the group setting. Simultaneously, anger and conflict also hold valuable therapeutic potential.  In this presentation, Dr. Black suggests that instead of being avoided or overly regulated, verbal attacks may be leveraged clinically to stimulate meaningful developmental progress and emotional maturation.
