Who Me, Lead a Group? What Makes Good Groups
Professional training with CE credits
Leaders with great one-to-one skills aren't always successful in conducting groups.
The fact is: good groups don’t just happen. They become engaging and vibrant when the group leader is able to bring an attitude of inclusion into the group setting, promoting connection, cohesion and safety.
This training is designed for people who are requested or required to lead groups as professionals or paraprofessionals and have limited training in group leadership skills or experienced group leaders who want to integrate action methods into their groups for greater engagement. It will be useful for those who lead psychotherapy and psychoeducational groups, youth and camp groups, support groups, religious education classes and other discussion or learning groups, including educators who know that the classroom is a place for more than teaching.
The aim is to give leaders the skills and theories to work with groups, to understand group dynamics and lead groups that are enriching and involving for all participants, including the leader.
In this training workshop, instructed by Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, you will learn:
Tuition is $45, if reserved by March 6, 2020 $55 after, and will include three CE credits for social workers, marriage and family therapists, professional counselors and addiction counselors, plus psychodrama credits. Space is limited; please contact Karen to reserve.

The training is appropriate for mental health and other health professionals, addictions counselors, educators, life and wellness coaches, clergy, community activists and professionals who work in social services programs as well as advanced students.
