2. Creativity Study Group:
The topic of creativity is of great interest to many members interested in joining a study group. Plans, therefore, are underway to start a second Creativity Study Group. An initial meeting was held in April to discuss ideas for the group. This group will focus, for the most part, in a similar way to the current creativity study group (listed under Study Groups on the website, “Experiential and Theoretical Investigation into the Creative Process). If enough people are interested in a different focus for the group, a third creativity study group will also be organized to start in the Fall.
A second meeting to further discuss ideas and topics for these groups will be held on:
If interested in attending the meeting or joining in September, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Novels and Memoirs as they Relate to Psychotherapy Study Group:
Several people have indicated that they would like to join a Novels and Memoirs study group. If there is enough interest in this topic, a second study group on this topic will also be organized for the Fall.
Please let me know as soon as possible if you are interested – email@example.com.
4. Creative Writing Study Group:
The tentative meeting time would be once a month on Thursday evenings.
If interested and/or you have questions please contact Jeffrey Jayfirstname.lastname@example.org or Etta Sandler – email@example.com.
5. Early Career Study Group:
Roger Segalla, ICP+P Director Emeritus, will be forming a study group starting in September 2016 for ICP+P members who are in the early years of their professional careers. This group will discuss issues such as: developing a professional identity, setting up a private practice, practice guidelines, creating a theoretical perspective, setting fees, dealing with insurance (or not), etc. We will also be reading and discussing a series of introductory, foundational, articles from Self Psychology and the Relational Perspectives.
