Eastern Group Psychotherapy Society is proud to present our Annual Conference, ALIVE IN THE MOMENT: Why Group Matters and How We Make It So on Friday, November 20th and Saturday, November 21st at Riverside Church in Manhattan.
Therapists of all backgrounds – with or without group experience- are invited to attend two special days devoted to personal and professional growth.
This year, Stewart Aledort, MD, CGP, FAGPA will give the Plenary Presentation, “Desire and Aliveness: The Group’s Power to Work Through the Passion in Shame.” As part of his presentation, Dr. Aledort will lead a live demonstration group on stage to bring to life his theory of how group can heal early misattunements.
In addition, our conference offers over forty workshops, most of them experiential, ranging from an introduction to the basics of group psychotherapy to specialized aspects of group work. Workshops cover a variety of approaches — Modern Psychoanalytic, Relational, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Systems-Centered, Brief Therapy, Authentic Movement— and explore many themes — Sibling Relationships, Buddhism, Feminism, Mind Body Integration, Sexuality, Eating Disorders, Money and Fees, Supervision, Racism, Aging, Social Transformation, Education, Groups in Everyday Life.
Last but not least, there is The Large Group Experience! All conference attendees are invited to participate in this unique group. This is an opportunity to be introduced to the concept of the “social unconscious” by three expert consultants.
