oWe are honoured and excited to welcome Dr. Moiyn Leszcz to facilitate this online workshop focused on increasing our effectiveness as group therapists. He will examine the evidence based factors that contribute to therapist effectiveness in group therapy, looking at the finding that, although the psychotherapies are generally equivalently effective, not all therapists are equally effective. Using theory, clinical examples and opportunities for experiential learning, Molyn will address what unfolds at the level of the therapeutic relationship that can improve or impede clinical effectiveness.Join us for this exciting opportunity to learn from a skillful teacher and seasoned group leader.
