Specific Interest Sections offer participants a chance to explore a particular theme in greater depth or to learn a new theoretical approach. For Specific Interest Sections, previous participation in a PGE is recommended but not required. Members agree to attend the entire group, to participate actively, and to respect the privacy of the other members. After attending an Institute, participants will be able to identify various aspects of group process and dynamics. These groups provide an important opportunity for experiential learning and growth.

Oahu Institute with RONNIE LEVINE, PhD, ABPP, FAGPA, CGP presenting "Becoming Comfortable with Uncomfortable Feelings." Issues concerning identity, cultural diversity and trauma can arouse difficult feelings. This workshop is designed to help therapists /group leaders understand and work more comfortably with uncomfortable feelings. We will explore how love, hate, fear and shame can be difficult both for the group members and the therapist. The workshop will study how we as a group can become more effective in working with these feelings. We will begin with the leader’s and the group member’s reluctance to have these feelings, examining what the obstacles communicate from various perspectives. In order to be effective with working with feelings generated in the group, we group leaders need to be comfortable with feelings: our own and our group members’.  The group leader needs to be sufficiently comfortable with their own feelings in order to be emotionally available for addressing the group members’ feelings of love, hate, shame and vulnerability and all that surrounds them. There are 10 openings for a 2-day Institute with a combination of experiential & didactic group process. 11.5 CEUs. If interested in attending or for more information, please contact:  Robin Spencer   robinspencer611@yahoo.com  •   808-741-0745

Class Matters: Exploring the Impact of Class on our Therapeutic Practice (co-sponsored with MIP and PCFINE)

Knowingly or not, issues of class can influence psychotherapy and therapeutic relationships. Where we practice and whom we treat, for example, as well as decisions about health insurance and fees often reflect the influence of class. Discomfort about social class may emerge when working with those from different economic backgrounds—whether from more privileged or less privileged. Trainers Annie Hamilton and Joanie Parker, members of Class Action, a nationally recognized social change organization committed to raising consciousness about class and developing ways to address classism, will lead us through lectures, interactive activities, personal reflection, and small group sharing to develop a more nuanced and informed position about issues of class, classism, and social inequality.

Online Group Psychotherapy: Ethical and Legal Issues

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: The omnipresence of technology has made group psychotherapists vulnerable to inadvertent boundary crossings, ethical breaches, and legal quandaries, especially given the almost daily changes in the ways we communicate electronically. We will discuss the issues we need to be aware of as well as ways to address these concerns.

OBJECTIVES: At the conclusion of this workshop, the participants will be able to: 1. Define the difference between privacy and confidentiality. 2. List three factors that might negatively influence the appropriateness of online psychotherapy for a particular client. 3. List three boundary issues that are specific to the use of online group psychotherapy. 4. Describe four ways one can establish safeguards that allow one to practice online group psychotherapy while maintaining ethical standards.

REGISTRATION INFORMATION: for members of PAGPS and Philadelphia Society of Clinical Psychologists (PSCP) 0 for non-members for student members for student non-members

Presenter: Shari Baron, MSN, CNS, CGP, FAGPA

In over 40 years as a nurse, psychotherapist and educator, Shari has explored ethical issues that impact the practice of the group psychotherapist.  She has used leadership positions in the American Group Psychotherapy Association and the American Psychiatric Nurses Association to increase awareness of these issues and to encourage discussion of the hard choices we all make each day.
