Group Psychotherapy and Recovery from Addiction

January 12, 2024 to June 28, 2024
Be a part of a psychotherapy group that assists in addiction recovery!
This educational group integrates professional psychotherapy practices with recovery community methods, providing a valuable learning experience. Joining this group will equip you with the skills to support addiction recovery and help you navigate the challenges that come with being part of a recovering community.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for physicians treating patients recovering from addictive disorders.

Learning Objectives

After this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Recall how surrender as a manifestation of transference to authority supports attaching to the recovery process;
  • Identify how meditation can facilitate receiving help from the recovering community by listening to a whole group;
  • Recognize how to operationalize authority in the service of recovery using the concept of a higher power as the relationship with authority;
  • Describe the concepts of unmanageability and resistance to end the stigma of addictive processes;
  • Discuss the concepts of powerlessness with free association to support experiential learning about recovery from addiction in the present;
  • Examine prayer as speaking to the whole group to facilitate the recognition of authority as distributed among all group members;
  • Contrast inventory-taking with resistance to transference to support using the relationship with authority to examine dysfunctional patterns of behavior;
  • Integrate the concept of carrying the message of recovery with using oneself in a role to enhance the effectiveness of clinical practice.
