Why Isn’t This Working?
How to Work with Patients Who are NEW to Group
Presenters: Saralyn Masselink, LCSW, CGP
Movtivated by my own experiences leading a process group at a treatment center, this workshop will explore the unique dynamics of leading process groups in a treatment center, reflect on some of the benefits and common struggles, and identify appropriate goals for process group work in this setting.
We will explore the idea of the pre-analytic patient, identify ways to intervene on an interpersonal and group level that helps to teach pre-analytic patients how to deepen their self-reflection and capacity for emotional connection. When working with an early group, it is important to keep an eye on the emotional thermometer, so that group members don’t get overwhelmed and are left unable to emotionally digest the material. This workshop will include lecture, case examples and discussion.
