About the Event

Join us for this one-day training featuring Dr. Michelle Ribeiro, ED., CGP, FAGPA. Using both didactic and experiential learning, this process-oriented workshop will highlight the value of relationships through a relational-cultural model of group psychotherapy. We will also examine how various social identities can create connection and disconnection, and practice authentically naming processes of dominance and oppression to advance health equity and move toward mutual growth. The experiential learning portion will involve a "demo group" with 6 to 8 volunteers to witness these interventions firsthand. This workshop is appropriate for all levels of training and experience!
