An often overlooked area in our group therapy community is that of leading groups outside of private practice. There are some stereotypic visions of what that might look like: clinicians running cookie-cutter CBT and DBT groups, devoid of interaction, group dynamics, or deep sharing. That simply isn’t the case.
Come and learn from our panelists and their view on their work. The practitioners on this panel are well versed in process and group dynamics… they have a deep love and respect for a range of modalities including process and skills based groups. There are definite challenges in these groups, which will be talked about, as well as sustaining rewards.
