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.

Class Matters: Exploring the Impact of Class on our Therapeutic Practice (co-sponsored with MIP and PCFINE)

Knowingly or not, issues of class can influence psychotherapy and therapeutic relationships. Where we practice and whom we treat, for example, as well as decisions about health insurance and fees often reflect the influence of class. Discomfort about social class may emerge when working with those from different economic backgrounds—whether from more privileged or less privileged. Trainers Annie Hamilton and Joanie Parker, members of Class Action, a nationally recognized social change organization committed to raising consciousness about class and developing ways to address classism, will lead us through lectures, interactive activities, personal reflection, and small group sharing to develop a more nuanced and informed position about issues of class, classism, and social inequality.

39th Annual Conference June 12-14, 2020

"Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Enriching our Groups and Ourselves"

We aim to explore all the different meanings of Diversity in our profession. How do we think about difference in our groups, and in our lives?

We hope to explore concepts, biases and ideas in areas that challenge and enrich our perspectives. By pushing against our own levels of comfort, we open spaces to create more welcoming and brave places to heal and be healed. Proposals are currently being accepted. Website:
