Description: This psychotherapeutic experience consists of ongoing group sessions in which individuals come together for relational contact, support and learning.  The group is devised to help people identity and understand their “blindspots” which may hinder their interpersonal lives and overall level of contentment. Often, these blindspots are not detectable in individual psychotherapy (neither by the patient nor the therapist) and are seldom made available for reflection in one’s everyday life.  Each group session focuses on significant events, dynamics and interactions among the members which are “freeze-framed” and evaluated, a process that will hopefully yield discoveries, insights, and positive change
