Leading Groups Online During COVID-19:  A Practical Overview Utilizing Group Therapy Frameworks. Sponsored by The Group Therapy Training Program (GTTP).


Date & Time:  Saturday, May 9, 2020 1:00 pm-3:00 pm

Held Via:           Zoom Virtual Meeting


Presented by three members of The Psychotherapy Institute who specialize in group therapy:

Ali Kimmell, LCSW, CGP, Jamie Moran, LCSW, CGP, Ann Steiner, Ph.D., MFT, CGP, FAGPA


Dr. Steiner will begin with an overview of the recent shift to groups online and she’ll address clinical issues unique to leading these groups. Utilizing Modern Analytic theory, Ali Kimmel and Jamie Moran will briefly introduce and explore four techniques: joining; working with induced feelings; bridging; and progressive emotional communication.

The three speakers will then hold a question and answer period that will focus on:  1)  Specific challenges group leaders are having in conducting on line groups.  2)  How modern analytic theory may help; and 3) Questions about the Modern Analytic approach and how it might apply to participants' groups and leadership style. You will have the opportunity to meet other faculty from GTTP and to ask questions about the one-year group therapy training program.

Modern Analytic Group Theory:  Improve Your Leadership Skills



NASW-FL’s 2020 Social Work Conference, June 11-13, 2020, Orlando, FL

(Conference is currently scheduled to take place in person as planned. This may be affected by Covid-19. Stay tuned for updates).


Date and Time: Friday, June 12 from 4:15 p.m. – 5:45 p.m.


Modern Analytic Group Theory: Improve Your Leadership Skills and Avoid Running Screaming out the Door


Describing and exploring Modern Analytic group theory (Louis Ormont), this workshop willl outline the challenges, obstacles, and rewards in group leadership.  This theory promotes interactions in the "here and now," increasing comfort with conflict (as appropriate to the group content/purpose), and pulling for critiques of the leader.  Group techniques of joining, bridging, and empathic failure/repair will be emphasized to further enhance group productivity and value.  Although focussed on Psychotherapy Groups, applications will be made to other groups and group leadership roles.
