Carolinas Group Psychotherapy Society offers online pandemic community support groups for therapists
Fridays through May 29, 12:30 to 1:30 PM.
Sign-up for the May 29th meeting is now open.
Our profession is built upon the idea that hearing and being heard are comforting and healing. And groups are a great place to share and process our feelings and experiences, to feel the benefits of community participation and connection.
As we all know, there’s a lot of uncertainty, anxiety and grief out there these days, compounded by isolation and loneliness. Every day, in addition to experiencing it ourselves, we therapists work to help others manage it. At the same time, we’re expected to be masters of a technology and a way of relating that’s new to many of us, and that’s evolving even as I write this. It’s a lot.
Like all of us, I very much look forward to connecting again in person. But in the meantime, CGPS is offering free open online support group sessions to the community of therapists in our area (North and South Carolina). Led by four wonderful, highly-trained, experienced group leaders from our membership (bios and scheduled dates are below), this will be a place where we can talk about what’s going on in our professional and personal lives, in the company of others who do what we do. You do not have to be a member of CGPS to attend, and no prior group experience is necessary—we hope attendees with limited experience of group as a helping modality will come away with a sense of its effectiveness.
Each group is limited to ten attendees, on a first-come first-serve basis. Sign-up for the May 29th meeting is now open..
Although they can be therapeutic, these support group sessions are not considered therapy, and although confidentiality is requested, it cannot be guaranteed.
Please email me HERE to sign up (email@example.com). I’ll email you back with a confirmation and a link to the meeting.
CGPS is an affiliate of the American Group Psychotherapy Association. Our members participate in our members-only online groups, listservs, and diversity discussions; and get big discounts to our workshops, information about group psychotherapy from across the country and around the world, and the knowledge that they’re part of a community that works to promote the healing power of group. Membership (good through 12/31) is FREE through the end of the year —please email our Membership Chair (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information about membership, or join online HERE
We look forward to being with you.
