Process group for Therapist
Starting January 2023
A process group helps therapists learn with and from others about relationships. Learn about the gaps between how you see yourself and the way you are being seen and understood by others. The group invites you to develop awareness, curiosity, and insight about how these gaps form. Most importantly, we provide you with the structure to talk about these patterns while staying emotionally connected to each other. Members will work towards becoming emotionally open therapists and strengthen their ability to communicate with their clients and become more reflective, connected, and mindful of their emotional impact.
Our approach is relational, which assumes that humans become who they are through past and ongoing relationships. The group becomes a safe place to learn about the roles you take, obtain valuable feedback about the emotional impact you have on others, and experiment with new ways of being and relating. We hope that these would lead to an improved ability to connect to others meaningfully and deepen your connection with yourself.
This group is designed for therapists. We invite therapists who are curious to understand their intersubjective impact on others and learn to identify what triggers them and what soothes them in relationships. We wish to create a supportive community of therapists that learns & grows together. This will allow each of you to grow your skill and confidence in supporting clients with complex emotions and relationships.
