An interpersonal process group is an interesting and effective way to deepen your clinical work and develop professionally. Members have the opportunity to:
- Receive and provide feedback regarding your communication style
- Explore multiple transferences
- Learn Conflict Resolution
- Access your vulnerability
- Deepen intimacy with others
- Experience camaraderie through the group process
- Learn to work in the “here and now”
- Reduce the isolation you may experience being a therapist
- Build emotional muscle
- Develop relationships across gender and race
Therapists are experiencing burnout at higher rates during these challenging times. And those of us working in solo practices may find we never have the opportunity to access collegial support. A process group can provide an anchor and sense of support.
This group is open to all therapists, national and international, including students of therapy and new graduates as well as seasoned clinicians.
About the Leaders:
Reggie Murph and Teresa Solomita both have extensive group leadership experience and training. They come together as co-facilitators to provide the group with a mixed gendered / mixed race leadership to create a group of member therapists from differing backgrounds. They are dedicated to guiding therapists to develop cultural and gender sensitivity through relationship.
