    Master Lecture: Relational Group Psychology

    Relational and Intersubjective approaches state that in every meeting there are two subjective experiences that meet, each of them with a need for recognition of their subjectivities. Applying the approach to groups emphasizes enactment instead of interpretation. Dr. Weinberg will explore the participants' experience and difficulty acknowledging other members' different experience, the therapists' limitations and their impact on the group, enactments and reparation in the group.

    After attending this session, participants will be able to:

    • Use intersubjectively-informed interventions in groups.
    • Work with enactments and reparations in group therapy.
    • Explain and utilize their limitations as group therapists.
