“GROUP: Creating Healthy Living Systems”


May 9th-12th, 2012

Travelodge Hotel and Conference Centre

Ottawa, Ontario



The Annual Canadian Group Psychotherapy Association [CGPA] Conference is an exciting gathering hosted each year in a different Canadian city with a focus on the dynamic practice of group therapy and the understanding of group process.

Our main objective for this year’s conference in Ottawa is to provide a welcoming environment to serve as an ideal context for education and personal growth.

CGPA prides itself on its diverse, multi-disciplinary membership. We recognize the contributions of different professional groups and therapeutic modalities and our conference reflects that diversity.

This conference will provide you with many avenues for learning about the creative approaches that leading educators and practitioners in the field are exploring. There will be opportunities to interact with others to expand your horizons and knowledge of group theory and practice. You will enjoy stimulating keynote presentations and smaller interactive workshops on a wide range of relevant topics. Experiential learning and reflection on group process is highlighted in many of the workshops.
