An on-going group for seasoned professionals dedicated to personal growth, developing meaningful relationships as we mature, and living creatively. Come join us as we explore together what is called “a return to an informed naivete”, an attitude that combines the freshness and exhilaration of discovery with the mature capacity for reverie and judgment. With this insight, we’ll look anew at the work we do and how it fits with who we are now.
“In Bill Roller’s therapy group I found compassion, humor and wisdom, along with a willingness among group members to be simultaneously curious, challenging and vulnerable. We brought in dreams, experiences and ideas, but also worked with our responses to and relationships with each other. It wasn’t always easy or comfortable to express or accept attempts at honesty and understanding, but Bill worked with skill and care to push us to look more deeply and to look at what we found in social, environmental and historical contexts. Getting to participate in group processes that led to more open hearts and minds kept me going back. There was always more to learn from the group. Bill’s group leadership skills kept the emotional work rigorous and rewarding, and his interest in connecting mythologies, justice and psychology made for a fun intellectual ride.”

“In the future, psychotherapy will be only 25 percent individual. The remainder will be group psychotherapy, not just because it is more cost- effective, but empirical research is demonstrating that many psychological and medical conditions are more responsive to group rather than individual approaches. This book anticipates this trend and is must reading for all psychotherapists and administrators who are designing behavioral health delivery systems, or who may find themselves a part of those systems.” —Nicholas A. Cummings, Ph.D., Sc.D., president, Foundation for Behavioral Health
