This institute for students and new professionals will address many of the important issues that arise when planning to start a therapy group including selection and screening of members, establishing a group contract, and managing the emotions of the leader. This institute will be primarily experiential and will include a didactic component based on the leaders experiences starting groups. This institute will be relevant for those starting a group in both a private practice environment as well as at an agency.
