“Treating Insecure Attachment in Group Psychotherapy”
Presented by Aaron E. Black, PhD, CGP, FAGPA

Click here to jump to tickets and rates.

Attachment theory is applicable to all forms of psychotherapy. The concepts of the secure base, emotional self-regulation and mentalization provide a powerful lens to understand how relational capacity develops in childhood and manifests within the therapy group. Utilizing a Modern Psychoanalytic approach, Dr. Black will provide applications for integrating theory, and techniques that can help groups heal attachment insecurity.

Through didactic and experiential learning, this conference will take an in-depth look at factors that contribute to the development of earned secure attachment in psychotherapy. This integrative approach provides the opportunity to gain insight, self-awareness, and group leadership skills, including cognitive, emotional, and behavioral elements.

Developmentally appropriate intervention strategies that aim to remove barriers to the expression of secure attachment behavior in group therapy will be described and demonstrated. We will learn how to enhance the leader’s ability to effectively attend to insecure attachment through awareness of and sensitivity to insecure self-states, rather than the classification of attachment styles.

The specific psychological features of insecurely attached self-states will be described as they shape both the group leader’s countertransference as well as client resistance to emotional contact and immediacy. The capacity to mentalize, an achievement of secure attachment, will be explored in order to craft effective interventions for the individual, subgroup, and group-as-a-whole.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be better able to:

  • Explain the concept and functions of the secure base in attachment theory.
  • Define mentalization and describe how it develops.
  • Identify and describe insecurely-attached self-states in group members to enhance the ethical practice of clinicians.
  • Provide an example of how resistance facilitates emotional self-regulation in group therapy.
  • Describe a developmentally sensitive intervention that can be used to resolve resistance to secure attachment in group therapy.

Presented By Aaron E. Black, PhD, CGP, FAGPA

Aaron Black, PHD, CGP, FAGPA has been in a full-time private practice in Rochester, NY, for 25 years, working with individuals, couples, and groups in psychotherapy, and providing clinical supervision and consultation to mental health professionals. His current professional teaching activities include running local and national training groups, as well as writing and presenting about group psychotherapy.  He is on the governing Board of AGPA and the faculty of the Center for Group Studies in NYC. He has written numerous papers on psychological trauma, attachment theory, modern psychoanalysis, and group psychotherapy.  His most recent publication appears in the July issue of the International Journal of Group 

Process Groups BOTH days:

Learning is often best accomplished by doing, and our emotional growth matters at least as much as our intellectual growth. In that spirit, this year will include an integration between the main presentation and smaller groups (led by carefully selected group therapist colleagues), where you’ll have an opportunity to process your experience of the presentation. This pairing over both days was successful last year, and will provide many opportunities to grow both professionally and personally.

Registration is for BOTH Friday and Saturday only due to the need for continuity in the Process Groups. Saturday only registration is NOT available for this event. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED BEFORE MAY 10th so that persons can be placed in process groups ahead of the event.

Process Group Leaders: TBD

After you register, an email with information on how to indicate your process group preferences will be sent. 

Required and Recommended Reading: TBD

12 CEU’s are available for Masters Level Clinicians.

Friday, May 15th

8:00 - 10:00 PM



ON ZOOM
(Once you have registered, you will receive an email with the Zoom link after May 8th.)

A group pulsing with aliveness infuses everyone involved with a sense of connection and possibility.  Risks are taken and new meanings emerge as members share a wider range of feelings with one another as well as the leader. But what about when this process stalls or stops?  How do we make sense of a group retreating into silent withdrawal or defensive chit-chat?  How do we help a group come back to life? This presentation addresses these questions by exploring common “dead spots” that groups can get mired in and how we as leaders can help the group get unstuck & revitalized.


Spring Event Co-Chairpersons:
Hilary Levine, PhD, CGP
Michael Altshuler, LCSW, CGP
