Description

Exploring the Multidimensional Aspects of Group: Intrapersonal, Interpersonal, Group as a Whole and Co-leader Dynamics in Group

There is so much going on in group. As a group leader it can be hard to pay attention to an individual member's needs, the relationships among members, what’s going on inside you and between you and your co-leader, as well as the group as a whole. In this institute, we will help you consider these multidimensional dynamics in group and help you decide at what level to intervene.

Leaders: Deborah Sharp, LCSW, CGP, and Ryan Spencer, LMFT, CGP

Tickets available: Tuesday, June 18 @ 8:01am
