The University of Pittsburgh will once again be hosting the Group Summit, a conference for UCC professionals (Staff, Trainees, etc.) promoting the values of Group Psychotherapy on July 21-22, 2014. It is a 2-day event, which will take place at the William Pitt Union, centrally located on the main campus of the University of Pittsburgh. It is an opportunity for staff to better understand the benefits of group psychotherapy and enhance their skills in the provision of group services.
This is the 3rd consecutive year that the University of Pittsburgh has presented the Group Summit, with each year being better than the last. The Summit is modeled after AGPA, with the first day (July 21) being reserved for experiential small group experiences, and the second day (July 22) containing seminars and presentations about a variety of group-related topics. Whether you are at a center attempting to build a group program or part of an already-thriving program, the Group Summit should be of interest. We are encouraging people to bring as many trainees as possible, as the Group Summit is an ideal way for new professionals to connect with peers and mentors who share a passion for group!
Breakfast will be provided both days. The Pitt Counseling Center will also be sponsoring a Happy-Hour event the evening of July 21 as an informal opportunity to meet other colleagues.
If you are interested in attending, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to register. Registration – One day = $55.00; Two days = $80.00.
If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact me either by e-mail or phone (412-648-7930).
