209, 309 – Using Group Process to Promote Healing
A New Model for Private Practice
James Gordon & Sabrina N’Diaye
Parts 1 & 2
Increasingly, therapists are looking for alternatives to the office-bound rigidity of traditional private practice. This workshop offers a vision of practice, which includes a dynamic group process that can be used in a variety of settings with many populations, such as other healthcare professionals and community leaders, as well as people suffering from common problems like depression, anxiety, chronic illness, and trauma. You’ll discover how to:
- Improve self-awareness and self-care for group members through guided meditation, drawing, journaling, movement, and other mind–body exercises
- Offer healing techniques tailored for a range of problems including anxiety, depression, PTSD, and chronic illness
- Transition to the role of group leader, educator, guide, and coach
- Develop a model for expanding your practice to help reach underserved populations.
