Looking to learn more about leading groups? Are you seeking a new group experience? Do you want more insight into your own group stimulated dynamics?
I am excited to announce a new consultation and supervision* group for group therapists. This is an experiential consultation group specifically for therapists leading groups, or actively planning to start a group.
In this supervision group, I use an experiential model developed by David Altfeld(1999). Cases presented in the supervision group are worked with by associations stimulated in the group members. Psychodynamic, relational and group-as-a-whole theories are then integrated to enhance understanding of group dynamics and inform future interventions to move past "stuckness" and enhance group functioning.
I have been exploring this model for the past 8 years and have found it tremendously useful at elucidating parallel material that may not otherwise be recognized. This first-hand insight gained into therapy group dynamics will expand the capability, knowledge and skills of all group members.
My work with therapy groups provides a deep sense of satisfaction as the therapy group members expand their emotional maturity. The power of participating in an experiential supervision group is three fold:
it illuminates unconscious processes that impact my group work,
provides diverse and multidimensional lenses through which to view interpersonal interactions, and
provides support and encouragement to keep learning and expanding my capacity in this exciting field. I hope you will join me.
