NCGPS Presents

Summer Series –  Online Events

We are proud to present a series of online workshops in seven consecutive Saturdays this summer.  Our first event will be July 11th, 2020.
This is a collection on workshops offered by some of our local group therapists who have presented at Asilomar conferences and at AGPA for many years as well as some newer presenters.
We hope that you will find in this wide range of topics some that seem personally and professionally meaningful to you. Come and join us in these online workshops and experience the healing power of group work.
We are striving to be mindful of diversity and inclusivity in all NCGPS’s offerings. The last event of this series, on August 22nd is a panel discussion by clinicians from different hospitals and clinics where they provide intensive, short term therapy to the patients. This panel brings in yet a different perspective to our regular offerings.

Group Therapy Outside of Private Practice:  A Conversation with our Clinical Panel

Distinguished Panel:

Moderated by: Latoyia Griffin Piper, LCSW, CGP


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.

We will also offer CE credits at an additional cost for licensed clinicians, which can be purchased at the time of registration.
