Minnesota Group Therapy Fall Conference

Purpose: To increase your effectiveness as a group therapist. The experiential format of this institute provides an opportunity for in-depth study of group interventions: it includes both self-reflective examination and didactic discussion of personal group experiences.

Format: Small group experientials, didactic, and group consultation/mastermind experiential. The experiential format is identical to group conferences organized by the American Group Psychotherapy Association and affiliated group therapy societies.

Learning Outcomes: Participants will be able to

  • Explain the components of therapeutic here-and-now activation and illumination

  • Select group leader interventions to activate and illuminate the here-and-now

  • Identify their own subjective experiences, and explore those of other participants and the group-as-a-whole experiences.

  • Incorporate mindfulness-based approaches and interventions to aid in activating and illuminating the here-and-now experience of members and the group-as-a-whole.
