GPALA Annual Conference 2018

Callin’ in Race: Finding Words, Finding Courage in Group

Presenters:  Christine Schmidt and Rudy Lucas

This conference will offer group leaders an opportunity to learn how our racial identities are consciously and unconsciously transformed through personal interactions. Group leaders nourish responsive groups by being able to identify and respond to colorblindness, racially encoded dog whistle language and micro-aggressions with honesty and openness. Once limiting racial taboos are spoken aloud they lose their toxicity. As we expand our skills about racial dynamics, we confidently foster cohesion in groups by making space for every member to be visible and heard.

GPALA One Day Conference 2018

Relational Development with Gestalt Group Therapy

Presenters:  Peter Cole, LCSW, CGP & Daisy Reese LCSW, CGP

In this workshop we will explore the theory and practice of a relational approach to Gestalt Group Therapy (GGT).  GGT is an interactive, process oriented approach that places emphasis on group members’ capacity for both self-activation and intimate connection.  The relational gestalt approach promotes a dialogical relationship between the group leader and group members in which the therapist works from a position of authenticity to promote both individual and group development.
