Desire and Disappointment in Group Psychotherapy–Strange Bedfellows or Not?

Don’t miss your opportunity to work directly with the legendary Dr. Bob Unger at our upcoming annual conference!

His workshop will explore the often uneasy relationship between desire and disappointment as these forces play out in the group context. Members will have ample opportunity to experience both and to study their interplay through the unfolding dynamics of the workshop.
