National Group Psychotherapy Institute

From birth to death we live our lives in groups. Therefore the group is both a logical object of study for understanding the human experience and a powerful agent of change. Dynamic group therapy provides a setting in which both leader and members can experience and observe the interplay of individual and collective processes. This dual focus enriches the flow of clinically relevant material, thus expanding the range of available therapeutic interventions.

The Group Psychotherapy Training Program has been preparing therapists to undertake group work since 1962. In 1994, The National Group Psychotherapy Institute was inaugurated with the support of a grant from the American Group Psychotherapy Association, which enabled us to broaden the scope of our teaching and training resources. Together the GPTP and the NGPI have achieved international recognition, and students have come to us from across the United States and from abroad.
