Fall Conference with featured presenter Harold M. Rice-Erso, PhD, CGP
Topic: The Stories that Enslave Us, The Stories that Liberate Us, and How We Work with Both in Group
Harold began his training as a group therapist while completing his MSEd at the University of Southern California and continued with his PhD studies in individual, group, and organizational dynamics at Northwestern University. His group training also included Tavistock Conferences, group therapy training at Evanston Hospital, and years of group therapy workshops through IGPS. His approach to group therapy combines systems perspectives and psychodynamic psychotherapy. In both his group and individual therapy, Harold draws on the understandings of human beings and life that come from all the great wisdom tradition - psychology, religion, spirituality, and philosophy. He is a Certified Group Psychotherapist (CGP) through the American Group Psychotherapy Association.
In addition to the Fall and Spring Conferences, Institute Workshops will be offered periodically during the year. For more information, including registration forms, please contact us at email@example.com
