Beyond Theory: A Process Group Experience For Group Leaders 

Join us for a small group experience (maximum twelve participants)  and take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn about group dynamics by participating as a member of a group committed to examining its own process. The group will be co-led by Allan Sheps and Joan-Dianne Smith. They will shape norms, establish safety, and assist the group with open dialogue about issues as they occur in the here and now. Members will be able to appreciate group themes and issues such as contracts, boundaries, conflict, competition, intimacy, group cohesion, and termination dynamics.

Along with increased self-awareness, participants will also be able to conceptualize the experience using theoretical models provided during the didactic summaries. Group members agree to participate for the whole duration of the group, and also participate in debriefing and evaluation. This program is not intended to serve as therapy, yet there will be a degree of connection and personal disclosure that will naturally unfold as the members begin to get to know each other, and interact as a group.

 Learning Objectives:

The participant will be able to:

1) Identify developmental stages in the group process.

2) Articulate common themes and dynamics in the group.

3) Link personal subjective responses with theoretical concepts.

4) Describe leader interventions that managed group process and assisted the group’s forward


5) Articulate the common dynamics of co-leadership
