The Group Therapy Training Program’s Annual Symposium:
Group Work in the Treatment of Trauma
across Diverse Populations

This year’s Group Therapy Training Program Symposium will bring together a panel of practitioners with expertise in using group work as a modality for treating trauma. These practitioners work with a diverse range of populations across a variety of treatment settings.

There will be a moderator, along with 3-4 panelists. The moderator will help structure the conversation and will frame their questions for the panelists around these guiding questions:

    • What are the unique benefits of using group work in treating trauma?
    • Describe your therapeutic approach in leading groups for trauma survivors–what theories have been most impactful in shaping your approach to this work?
    • What are some of the factors unique to the population that you serve that have shaped the way you approach group work?
    • What are the most important lessons you’ve learned as a group therapist in terms of providing meaningful group experiences for trauma survivors?
    • Please share a vignette that helps elucidate the potential benefit and challenges of providing group trauma treatment to the population that you serve. Please describe specific group interventions you might use in the groups you lead.
