Membership alert

Goal is to increase communication networks throughout the Society

By Elaine Clanton Harpine

Our membership goal for 2012 is to increase communication networks throughout the Society. The Society of Group Psychology and Group Psychotherapy encompasses many diverse aspects of group work. Many members have requested a network system which would allow members to be in more direct contact with others in their specific area of group work. In order to create such a system, we need your help. We are looking for volunteers — senior faculty, early career, students, independent practitioners, community workers, school-based group workers, career and workplace group specialists — anyone and everyone who works with groups. Regardless of whether your area of specialization is prevention, therapy, research, social psychology or simply group theory, we need you to step forward and be counted. We will be making phone calls; so be ready to reach out and get involved, form a group, or initiate a chat session with others in your area of group work. We still need volunteers in:

  • Prevention
  • Children’s groups
  • Therapy
  • Parenting groups
  • College counseling centers
  • Group research

Contact me to make sure that we have an interest group for you.
