The Process and Power of Group Therapy

john peloianCAAMP presents John Peloian, PsyD (PSY27345) in an interactive presentation on the process and power of group therapy.

His presentation will include a 30-minute group demonstration with participation from volunteering attendees. 

Dr. Peloian’s clinical background consists of extensive work with individuals with early trauma and additional work with addiction recovery, emotional dysregulation, life adjustments, individuation, dissociation and psychosis. 

Over many years, Dr. Peloian has gained experience facilitating and participating in psycho-educational and process groups.

In this presentation, The Process and Power of Group Therapy,attendees will learn:

  1.                 Types of groups in society; why we are drawn to groups
  2.                 Benefits and challenges of group therapy, for both clients and therapists
  3.                 Stages of group development

“We are born into groups. Our original group is our family where we adapt relational styles of interacting and intimacy. These manners of relating to others stay with us into adulthood. Unfortunately, many of these same adaptive behaviors learned through childhood interactions become outdated and keep us from growing into our truer selves, or maintaining deeper relationships. Group psychotherapy can be a place to explore our relational styles in real time with others who are motivated to grow.”
