Dear Community,

At a time of escalating social crisis, when we continue to cope with the intersecting challenges of pandemic and entrenched racial, social, economic, and political injustice, we invite you to join us for a weekend of reflection and connection at this year’s Eastern Group Psychotherapy Society Annual Conference. Amidst mounting challenges, can our groups be a well-source that helps to contain our distress, reaffirm our dignity and shared humanity, and generate vitality and hope?

Centered on the theme "Treating the Self: Revisiting the Personhood of the Leader,” our 2021 Virtual Conference explores the bidirectional impact of the leader’s whole self on the health and vitality of our groups. How does our leadership, informed by our unique personalities and identities, facilitate or impede the work of the group? What is our role as leaders in creating an environment that fosters community, curiosity, self-exploration, and accountability? Please join us for this timely conference examining how our identity shapes our leadership and informs the larger group process.

Our program includes 2 ½ hour workshops as well as longer, double-session workshops for both beginning and experienced clinicians. There will be presenters new and old, of diverse backgrounds and orientations. As usual, many of our workshops will feature the experiential learning that has been so valued by attendees over the years. Please take a moment to look through the brochure, highlight the workshops you’d like to attend, and register soon so that you can be admitted to your top choices.

This year, EGPS is proud to announce a Racial Equity Registration rate in our efforts to advance our moral and professional aspiration to become an anti-racist organization. The Racial Equity Rate is available to all Conference participants (including Faculty) who identify as members of racial and ethnic groups that have historically been denied equal access to education and training.

Please Note: Registration includes the Plenary Address on Friday evening, November 19th, with Willard Ashley, Sr., DMin, Rev, SCP, NCPsyA, CGP and our Large Group meetings facilitated by Kimberley A. Turner, PhD, Janice K. Wagner, MSW and Jonathan Rust, PhD, NCC. You do not need to register separately for these two events, as everyone who registers for the full Conference or the two-workshop option will be provided entry

If there are any questions or concerns prior to the Conference, please do not hesitate to contact us. Also, if you would like to get involved in the Conference Committee, we are always looking for new contributors.

Looking forward to seeing you in November,

Kathleen Isaac, PhD
Brooke Greene, PhD

2021 Conference Co-Chairs
