This 2-hour Workshop/Seminar, will utilize volunteers from the audience to present clinical cases and simulate a group supervision experience.

Participants will then be prepared to use this process with individuals in treatment.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • Utilize sensory motor communication within a group setting
