About the Institute: This fall, our institute focuses on the fundamental aspects of group treatment, with a strong emphasis on the “how.” While individual therapy is valuable, group therapy is equally effective and often overlooked. We’ll delve into the “who, what, when, where, and how” of group therapy, emphasizing concepts from Yalom. The entire event operates as a group experience, offering a day-long refresher or a chance to enhance your knowledge.

With extensive experience as a clinical social worker, group therapist, and educator, Karen runs a thriving private practice since 1992. She also works as a contract group therapist at Jefferson Oaks Behavioral Health and Our Lady of Lake/LSU Psychiatric Residency Program. Karen is an adjunct faculty member at Louisiana State University and actively contributes to several professional organizations, including the Group Foundation for Advancing Mental Health, Louisiana Association of Clinical Social Workers, National Association of Social Workers, American Group Psychotherapy Association, and Louisiana Group Psychotherapy Society.
