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.
