Adolescence is an exciting and challenging time of development. Success as a group psychotherapist with this population requires courage, knowledge, humor, and creativity. Using our own group process, we will explore our own adolescence and its impact on our work as clinicians. Experiential experiences will be anchored with didactic presentations on adolescent development, attachment, and group theory. Participants will gain a better understanding of their adolescent-self and its impact on the group. Registrants are required to attend all eight sessions. CE credits will not be awarded to registrants who miss sessions.

12 CE Credits available at 0 for members/ 0 for nonmembers. This event is not recorded.

Time: 9:00am - 4:00pm
Event: Puget Sound Group Psychotherapy Network: Annual Conference 2021 Treating Insecure Attachment with Dr. Aaron Black
Description:

Full details and register: https://psgpn.org/event/psgpn-annual-spring-conference-2021/

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. Dr. Black has a unique ability to make these ideas accessible and usable in the way he talks about complex ideas with understandable language. He provides clear applications of theory and technique 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 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 resistances to emotional contact and immediacy. The capacity to mentalize, an achievement of secure attachment, will be explored to craft effective interventions for the individual, subgroup, and group-as-a-whole.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be better able to:

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

Webinar: Do I Belong Here? Hate, Safety, and Being Asian American

Tuesday, June 15, 2021, 7:30-9:00 PM (Eastern) *Please be cognizant of applicable time zones

Bob Hsiung, MD & Teresa Lee, MD

Anti-Asian hate erupted with unprecedented visibility in 2020, triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic. We started three Zoom groups specifically for Asian American therapists to facilitate a sense of safety. But is it racist to exclude others based on their race? In this workshop, we discuss affinity groups and Asian Americans, explore through group experience hate, safety, belonging, and being Asian American, and conclude with a sure-to-be-lively discussion. Everyone, including non-Asian therapists, are welcome to participate.

Participation for members is free. Participation for nonmembers is .00. 1.5 CE credits are available at for members or .00 for nonmembers.

Event: NSGP 40th Annual Conference: Equity, Inclusion & Diversity: Bridging Differences in Times of Crisis
Description:
https://nsgp.wildapricot.org/AnnualConference
June 18-20 & 25-27
In this conference, we aim to explore all the different meanings of Diversity in our profession. How do we think about difference in our groups, and in our lives? We hope to explore concepts, biases and ideas in areas that challenge and enrich our perspectives. By pushing against our own levels of comfort, we open spaces to create more welcoming and safe places to heal and be healed.

Access to our conference is one of our top priorities. This year our conference is fully virtual via Zoom. This will allow professionals from all over the country to participate! 

NSGP also wants our conference to be accessible to as wide a community as possible.  Therefore we are introducing a new Equity Rate for those who identify as members of a group that suffers from ongoing institutional barriers whether it be race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity as well as new professionals.

NSGP also offers many Scholarships to help defer costs. It is important to carefully follow instructions when applying for scholarships, or registering with an equity rate.

For more information and to get involved, contact our Conference Co-Chairs

Each moment of group leadership offers us an existential choice with endless possibilities actions. The exponential expansion in psychological theory and research adds complexity and possibilities.  As leaders, we may choose from established approaches (Psychoanalytic traditions, CBT, Mindfulness), integrate emerging theories (Relational-Cultural, Context-Responsive and Post-postmodern theories), and/or create something new.  After a brief didactic introduction, an experiential exercise informed by a demo group will aim to help attendees explore and expand their leadership interventions.

Participation for members is free. Participation for nonmembers is .00. 2.0 CE credits are available at for members or .00 for nonmembers.
