Fellowships in Individual and Group Therapy
Over the last 40 years, the Institute for individual and Group Psychotherapy (IIGP) faculty has refined a highly effective approach to psychotherapy that combines group and one-to-one sessions. This method is powerful. When practiced by skilled clinicians, it can significantly reduce emotional and physical symptoms. The results are routinely positive, often dramatic and occasionally life-saving. The changes are usually long-lasting without the side effects of medication.
The combined therapy model, with alternating individual and group sessions, provides a psychotherapy setting where patients can be helped to change basic character features that interfere with optimal functioning. Individual sessions provide the safety and nurturing of a one-on-one relationship while the group offers opportunities to try out different ways of living with others.
The IIGP offers a unique and valuable opportunity for therapists who wish to better their craft and grow their practice:
- Train side-by-side with seasoned group therapists.
- Integrate effective group therapy into your individual therapy practice.
- Deepen your relationships with patients to cultivate lasting character change.
- Ongoing mentoring, supervision and CEU’s.
- Limited scholarships and stipends are available.
The key to effective psychotherapy is the therapist. Who the therapist is as a person- not only what he or she knows – is of utmost importance. He or she is the instrument that largely determines the outcome of therapy.
