The Group Therapy Training Program emphasizes a psychodynamic understanding of group interaction, the importance of appropriate diagnosis for successful group treatment, the use of the therapist's self, the value of combined therapy, and the selective use of group modalities tailored to specific treatment situations. Focused courses in working with adolescent, addicted or elderly groups are available. We offer three training tracks.
A two-year program involving seminars, supervision, leading group therapy, and personal group therapy.
A segmental program wherein a trainee may choose one and/or two components, thereby allowing maximum flexibility over an extended period of time.
A module program wherein there are two 4.5 hour academic seminars per trimester on Saturdays, for a total time commitment of 6 seminars for the year (3 trimesters). This track allows for an introduction to the basic concepts of group therapy and theory but could also be credited for those who want to pursue the entire program. This module does not include the group supervision component of the program.
- Seminars and supervision held on Saturdays to accommodate busy clinicians. All other aspects of the program are individually arranged.
- Supervised clinical hours that count towards licensure requirements and Certified Group Psychotherapist status (CGP) from the AGPA, as well as supervised clinical hours for social workers.
- The opportunity to lead groups through our clinic.
- Certificate is awarded upon completion.
