About the Conference:

Group therapy adds a broadened perspective to individual treatment. Expanding beyond an emphasis on the client’s inner experience as well as their immediate environment to their engagement with larger and more complex worlds offers the therapist and client increasing awareness of the impact of these larger contexts.

Conference attendees will have the opportunity to consider the impact of a combined treatment model of individual and group therapy. A panel of group experts will discuss the value of such a model and how it can be implemented.

Small and large groups will be part of the program, giving participants the opportunity to discuss the panel’s presentations as well as processing their own experiences in both the small and large groups. There will be an emphasis on the relational dimensions of group therapy.

About the Reception:

November 2018 marks the 80th birthday of Rosemary Segalla. In honor of Rosemary’s passion for groups, we celebrate this occasion as a large group — As the warm professional community Rosemary co-founded and actively sustains. Your registration includes the champagne/wine and hors d’oeuvres reception that directly follows the conference.
