Helping People Change: The Power of Group Work

December 6 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm

| $200.00

Groups help to create community to combat loneliness and isolation, and increase connection and productivity at work, within health care, and with personal relationships.

This online program will provide an integrated approach and an indispensable tool box for bringing thoughtful, nurturing, empowering practice, and strategy to relationships of all kinds through the facilitation of group work.

The assets of group work, beyond cost effectiveness and reduced isolation for patients and group leaders alike, can be utilized in many situations: teaching, team meetings, retreats, psychoeducational issues in healthcare, workshops, community gatherings, business settings, sports teams, counseling, religious organizations, and psychotherapy.

The combination of cognitive and experiential learning in this program will leave you with solid understanding, skill, and commitment to initiate group work practice in your professional, personal, and interpersonal settings.

You will become aware of your own responses to your clients, patients, students, colleagues, friends and family, and improve your ability to regulate your affect with thought and sound judgment.

You will also see the role humor plays in facilitating group work and its connecting force of cohesiveness.
