Spring Workshop with Jordan Price, LCSW, CGP & Angelo A. Ciliberti, LPC, LAC, CGP

April 20 @ 1:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Entering The Early Unknown:
Sensing When To Speak & Be Silent As A Group Leader

Friday - April 20th, 2018
1pm to 5:30pm

Earlybird rates available until Friday March 16th!

As group leaders we are constantly making decisions in the moment on whether to speak or stay silent. But how do we make these decisions and what are the criteria? When we do decide to intervene we want to make a skillful therapeutic response; one that might be explicit or implicit, verbal or non-verbal. In this workshop, we will discuss the developmental arc of early psychological life as understood by affect regulation theory and several complementary psychoanalytic theories. Emphasis will be placed on keeping an open clinical body and mind while using physiological, emotional, sensory, and cognitive information so that we can make helpful therapeutic decisions from a grounded and informed theoretical base.

Learning objectives

1. Identify primary psycho-developmental stations of early life as understood by affect regulation theory and varying complementary psychoanalytic theories.
2. Learn the maturational needs of these developmental periods and how group leaders can use themselves and the group to address them.
3. Examine how a group leader can use their full range of experiences, including physiological, emotional, sensory, and cognitive to understand where a group and its members may be functioning developmentally at a given moment.
4. Identify and develop techniques for group intervention at different developmental stations of early life.

What are Institutes?

An institute is a highly experiential form of small group teaching led by an experienced leader intended to develop general therapy skills relevant to leading groups. Institutes are process-oriented groups primarily designed for clinical professionals who have clinical psychotherapy experience. They often offer a chance to explore a particular theme in greater depth or to experience a different theoretical approach. Members agree to attend the entire event, to participate actively, and to respect the confidences of the other members. The secure environment of these small groups allows for rich cognitive and deeper emotional learning about group process and oneself, as well as a chance for personal and professional renewal.
