3/13/16: NOW OFFERING: A new Group Consultation Group for therapists who wish to become more adept at running groups or who would like expert consultation about groups they are currently running.
It takes a group to understand a group and group supervision is, in my opinion, the best place to learn about being a group therapist.
Learn more about the specialization that is group psychotherapy and take your group work to a new level.
Group consultation will be semi-didactic, semi-experiential (a process group), and will offer the opportunity to consult on groups, as a group.
The group will begin with 1 or more members and will cap at 8 members.
We will meet once a month on Mondays from 9am - 10:30am on the West Side of Santa Cruz.
Contact me at katherinezwickMA@gmail.com if you are interested in joining.
The fee for participation is $75 per month per member. I ask for a minimum commitment of 6 months.
We will have ample time to talk individually to see if this is a good fit for you.
My group psychotherapy training is extensive as I have been a practicing group therapist for nearly a decade and have ardently pursued this specialization. My theoretical orientation as a group therapist is a mix of group relations/organizational dynamics, family systems, and here-and-now interpersonal; I also bring in psychodrama and Gestalt techniques as may be called for in the spontaneous life of the group. As a consultant to a group consultation group, I will bring in elements of parallel process to assist group members in enhancing their understanding of how to apply the "here and now" to the "then and there."
This will be a lively, vibrant, and dynamic experience that can invigorate your passion for group work as well as equip you with the skills needed to be an effective group psychotherapist!
