Professional Development

The CGPA: Group Therapy, Group Training, Group Facilitation’s aim is to encourage, foster, sponsor, and provide training and education about group processes, including psychotherapy, for all those interested in, and working with, groups across Canada. The annual national conference, multi-center bi annual experiential training groups and monthly web-based educational seminars provides a unique and rich opportunity for group practitioners and leaders to advance their knowledge and skill. Most disciplines are able to receive continuing education credits for participating in these events.

Within the Sections and Communities of Practice, educational events are geared to meet specific regional and local interests. Those wanting to provide training can tap into expertise from across the nation through the Presenters Directory.

In addition, the Association advances group practice and training by recommending setting national training standards. Regional training is available in many areas across the country including Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary, Ottawa and Atlantic Canada.
