How Do I Leave Thee?  Endings and Existential Issues in Group 

presented by the National Group Psychotherapy Institute (NGPI) of the Washington School of Psychiatry

Plenary Presenters

Maryetta Andrews-Sachs, LICSW, CGP, FAGPA & Farooq Mohyuddin, MD, CGP, FAGPA


Termination is a factor in every therapy group, and yet it is a critically important but frequently neglected part of treatment.  We will examine the ramifications of this essential dynamic in group life, looking at its complexities and possibilities - for mourning and celebration, for integration.  This is an area of work that must be looked at from different perspectives:  the individual member, the therapist, and the group as a whole.  Through didactic material, movie clips, case presentations, and discussions, we will explore the existential and treatment issues around this.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify the strong reactions generated in the group by terminations. 
  2. Discuss the task of the final phase of the life cycle of the group as the group/member terminates. 
  3. Apply the didactic material to the groups they lead. 
  4. Analyze the impact of terminations within group and outside group. 
  5. Define existential psychotherapy. 
  6. Recognize the resistance to terminations and the subtle ways that it can impact process. 
  7. State the impact of leaders’ countertransference on terminations. 
  8. Recognize the dangers of abrupt terminations.

NGPI STUDENTS ONLY.
