What is COGPS?

Upcoming Training Group:

Exploring Enactments in the Immediacy of Group Process
With Dr. Elizabeth Olson PsyD, LCSW, CGP

About the Workshop:
Through a dynamic group process, we will explore the ways that our historical, familiar interpersonal patterns arise in the moment. The immediacy of group engenders old feelings, thoughts and projections that play out in the multiple transferential relationships recreated by the process. These rich transferential experiences allow for a working through of the old and the hope for change–for something new to occur in relationship with others. The progressive working through that occurs in group translates into meaningful, real change in one’s life.

About the Presenter:
Dr. Elizabeth Olson specializes in working through repetitive, character patterns that limit one’s ability to cope effectively in family systems, intimate partnerships, work, and other interpersonal relationships. Dr. Olson enjoys working relationally with clients over time to assist them in feeling happier and healthier. She is interested in collaborating with clients to understand and work through the unconscious elements that interfere with their ability to enjoy their lives and to help them become more comfortable and conscious.
