Please join us for the new and improved NSGP Principles of Group Psychotherapy Course!


We are excited to be providing a revamped, reenergized, more extensive Principles Course, with a terrific array of presenters.

The Principles course will consist of 5 day-long modules, each with a morning didactic and afternoon experiential portion. Each module will take a contextual, culturally sensitive approach to the effective integration and application of theory and practice. All modules will be held in person in the greater Boston area (except module 2 which will be online). The program will meet the didactic requirements for the CGP credential.

The total cost for the program is $750.  Scholarships and Equity Rate Options are available.
