AT Book Club with the authors!

Join the authors of Adventure Group Psychotherapy: An Experiential Approach to Treatment in this series of eight monthly events!

This monthly book club will provide a structure for reading through the content of the book, Adventure Group Psychotherapy: An Experiential Approach to Treatment, to align the book’s major themes with the participant’s actual practice. Each session will begin with a 10-minute overview of the selected content by the authors followed by breakout sessions in small groups to discuss how the ideas presented play out in practice. The authors will use questions to prompt small-group discussion and our own group work skills to facilitate the learning in every session.
