NEW STUDY GROUP – Hyde Park Contact Theresa Gregoire, PsyD – email@example.com,
Peer study groups are one of the most effective ways of maintaining, upgrading, and refining our therapeutic awareness and skills.
Study groups vary in:
• Focus on cases and/or readings: some are primarily cases groups, some are primarily readings groups, and some try to balance readings and cases.
• Psychoanalytic/psychodynamic focus: Group focus may be more traditionally analytic, more contemporarily analytic, or a combination, and may be more or less open to psychodynamic contributions outside psychoanalysis per se.
• Requirements of members: Member requirements may vary for any group, for example, some groups admit only practicing therapists who have current cases to present. Members must be CAPP members (see below under “Fees”).
• Group culture: Every group has its own microculture and facilitation style.
• Being open or closed to new members at any given time.
No group is a good match for all members, any more than there is a “one size fits all” therapy.
There are three Evanston groups:
• A Friday morning group meets monthly, and focuses primarily on cases, with occasional readings/cd listening. This group is currently closed. Contact Jay Einhorn, 8472123259, firstname.lastname@example.org.
• A Tuesday morning group, meeting monthly, focusing about equally on cases and readings. This group is currently closed. Contact David Rakofsky, PhD – email@example.com,
• A Saturday morning group, meeting monthly, focusing about 1/2 and 1/2 on readings and cases. Contact: Zahava Davidson at ZDavidson@northshore.org. This group is currently open to new members.
• Another study group meets monthly on Sunday afternoons and alternates between Evanston and loop locations. This group is a mixed readings and cases group, and focuses on both neurocognitive and psychodynamic material; so it is nicknamed “Both Feet on the Ground.” Facilitated by Jay Einhorn.
• The Hinsdale group is CAPPs most venerable group. It meets monthly (except during the summer) on a Sunday morning and is a case consultation group. The group adds an additional meeting approximately every 6 weeks to discuss readings. This group is currently closed.
There is no charge for study group participation, but CAPP membership is required. Non-CAPP members may try out a study group for up to three sessions on a trial basis, but must become CAPP members in order to continue.
CAPP’s Chair of Peer Study Groups is Jay Einhorn. Contact Jay for more general or specific information: firstname.lastname@example.org/, 8472123259.
