Rochester Area Group Psychotherapy Society
The Rochester Area Group Psychotherapy Society was established in 1988 as an affiliate society for the American Group Psychotherapy Association, a national non-profit organization dedicated to the training of group psychotherapists. Our volunteer board and membership body is multi-disciplinary, made up of psychologists, social workers, marriage and family therapists, creative arts therapists, mental health counselors, drug and alcohol counselors, teachers, nurses, and physicians. Our workshops provide a venue for the discussion of both individual and group psychotherapy principles, give our participants the opportunity to participate in demonstration groups, and create an environment that fosters both professional and personal relationships. We believe that group psychotherapy principles can be applied broadly in a variety of settings, and welcome any and all people who live and work in groups.
