She presents and publishes nationally on group psychotherapy, mindfulness, eating disorders, dialectical behavior therapy, parenting, and family dynamics.

Francis Kaklauskas
Psy. D., CGP, FAGPA

Dr. Francis Kaklauskas has 25+ years experience in various clinical settings with diverse clients. He leads training groups for clinicians that combine personal growth and supervision, as well as general psychotherapy groups. He publishes academic work on existentialism, transpersonal psychology, mindfulness, and integrating empirical research into psychodynamic and humanistic oriented clinical practice. Francis is a co-editor and contributor to Core Principles of Group Psychotherapy, the primary curriculum for the AGPA’s Principles of Group Psychotherapy (CGP credentialing) course.

Program Description:

Psychodynamic group psychotherapy is an exciting, cost-effective and powerful modality. But many graduate programs don’t give it the attention it deserves.

Using experiential and didactic methods, Drs. Olson and Kaklauskas, married co-presenters, will share history, theory and practical interventions and techniques to build confidence with group.

We will learn basic frameworks for starting and leading groups, deepening group process, working skillfully with diversity issues, and ethically utilizing individual and group transference dynamics. And we will see firsthand how exploring these dynamics in groups helps to change the ways we see ourselves and our relationships, and provides new and healing experiences.

Objectives:

At the end of the workshop participants will be able to do the following:

  1. Review and describe their increased knowledge of group dynamics and process from participating in the small groups and observing the behavior of the group members, leader, and themselves.
  2. Describe and explain the parallels between improv and group process.
  3. Identify 9 tools of improv that, when applied to group process, can deepen and expand the efficacy of group process and the group therapy experience.
  4. Describe the use of principles of improv to increase awareness of and ability to address their own areas of challenge with respect to group process as both members and leaders.
  5. Discuss the ethical application of the theory and principles of improv to diverse group populations, in appreciation of age, nationality, race, ethnicity, sexuality, gender, ability, and religion.
  6. Describe the use of improv principles, concepts and tools in the understanding of their small group experience.
