Education/ Breakfast/Network Event OCTOBER 18 2018 Applied Existential Group Therapy: Shifting Intervention Levels - Individual Change & Group Process - Dr. Betty Cannon & Robyn Chauvin, MA, LPC  Presentation counts for two hours of Colorado Continuing Competency Units (CCs).

Le Peep’s Restaurant, 2525 Arapahoe Avenue (next to McGuckin Hardware), 8:00-10 am,   Cost is ordering a breakfast or $10 to CAP.

Dr. Cannon and Robyn Chauvin share tips for holding groups together in private practice. Learn how group therapy, when done effectively, often provide an impetus to change that is more difficult in individual therapy. Also, group therapy is more cost effective while offering group members safety when presenting challenges for growth and development.

Learn how to flow with the individual, interpersonal, and group issues going on all at once in group processes. Recognize and work with different levels of intervention for internal conflicts, projection of family of origin issues onto the group, and explore stages and themes of development in group processes.  Review how different levels of intervention are effective for different stages of group development: forming, storming, norming, performing, and ending. Just as an infant or a two-year old needs different treatment than an adult, so too the needs of a forming group are different than those of a mature working group.

Participate in a couple of exercises around identifying and knowing when to use different levels of intervention––and how to shift between intervention levels to help a group get unstuck and move forward. Discuss how to gradually build a group that supports individual transformation in the group - and how to keep a group together over time. Review how sometimes groups can hold existential anxiety that goes with deep level change better than individual therapy. When this happens, group members support each other as they step into the unknown - into the space where self and world change together.
