The Brookline Center for Community Mental Health and The Northeastern Society for Group Psychotherapy Observation Groups

Two Observation Groups are available.

Group 1 is led by Annie Weiss, LICSW, CGP, FAGPA, and Tracy MacNab, Ph.D., CGP, who alternate leading the group individually on 10-week intervals. This group meets on Thursday mornings from 10:00 AM to 11:45 AM.

Group 2 is led by Joel Krieg, LICSW, CGP and Julie Anderson, Ph.D., CGP who co-lead together. This group meets on Tuesday mornings from 10:15 AM to 12:00 PM.

Much like enrolling in a course, observers commit to a minimum 10-week window of observation. This is both to ensure the comfort of group members as well as to support the observers' learning. Observers also pay a covering fee of $200 per observation interval. There is a 50% discount available to NSGP members.
