We are happy to announce the formation of an ongoing psychodynamic process group co-lead by Dr. Bob Unger and Paul Bialek MA LPC. This group will be an opportunity for members to gain awareness about themselves in and through relationships; to more clearly see their relational patterns; and to try out more flexible and useful modes of relating. If you would like to join the group please contact either Bob or Paul at the addresses below:

Marc Azoulay statement for position of President

I’m honored to be nominated for President-Elect of COGPS. I’ve been thinking about running for this position since I attended the conference last November. I plan to build on the foundation that Casey Burnett set and take COGPS to the next level. First, I plan to review and rewrite our bylaws, many of them do not apply to the scale and structure of our organization, we are in need of a more streamlined and accessible structure. A big part of this initiative will result in the creation of board offices with specific responsibilities and duties Next, I plan to build the marketing arm of COGPS in order to spread our name across the state. I also plan work closer with AGPA in order to offer certified group psychotherapist CGP supervision groups and assistance. I’ve posted a video on COGPS’s Facebook page, check it out for some more information and don’t hesitate to call or email me if you’d like to talk more about what I can offer to the organization.

This is going to be an exciting adventure!
