Several therapists have reached out to me here at Group Therapy Central wanting to connect with online group services designed for therapists. I compiled the following list of Online Groups for Therapists, which contains all the people that I know are providing online groups designed for therapists. Most of these groups are training and/or consultation groups, and many seem to be process-oriented. A few are identified as Modern Psychoanalytic groups. If you know of any other online groups for therapists, please let me know and I will add them to this list! Thanks! -Nate Page

ONLINE PROCESS-ORIENTED TRAINING GROUP FOR THERAPISTS
Group Members are mental health clinicians that want an ongoing process group experience. We will meet virtually twice a month for 90 minutes. We will likely meet on Tuesday evenings. This is a not a therapy group, yet the boundaries /norms of confidentiality will be observed and members may bring into the group anything that is meaningful to their experience as a therapist and as a human being. It will be a relational process group in it's truest sense. We will continually activate, illuminate, and process the here-and-now dynamics of our relationships together. The content of the group will be driven by group members wants/needs. I anticipate that themes surrounding attachment styles, relationship concerns, burnout/compassion fatigue, finances and money management/mindsets, imposter syndrome, and other issues related to being a clinician will surface...but that is just the beginning of what this group will address. The group may also decide to create space for consultation and masterminding work as needed. The goal of the group is to immerse ourselves in a process experience while also being able to reflect on this experince in a way that is helpful to professional development as therapists.
In many ways this group is similar to an institute experience at an AGPA or affiliate society conference, but ongoing.
The structure of the group will be 75 minutes of group processing and then 15 minutes of debrief/didactic. We will likely meet up in-person once or twice per calendar year for a full day or two of group processing.
Full pay fee: $90/session
Sliding scale options: Absolutely!
An important compoent of this group will probably be processing feelings and mindsets regarding payment for group therapy services. We will work within our group to appropriately attend to each member's personal and professional financial needs and goals.
RACIAL LITERACY GROUPS Christine & Rudy (plus several additional colleagues) offer groups designed to develop your racial literacy (for example, Whiteness Learning groups, Racial Literacy groups, and Racial Literacy Consultation groups) . Some groups are in-person in the NYC area and some are online via Zoom available to anyone in the world. Three groups are set to start Fall of 2019.

Cindy offers coaching and mastermind groups. The groups are onoing via video-conference (Zoom). One group is for therapists (and other practicioners in related fields). the others are for entrepeneurs and biz owners. There will be openings beginning in June and September 2019. These are run like standard process groups, but they are coaching groups and/or masterminds. In addition to being a Licensed Psychologist, Cindy is now a Professional Certified Coach with ICF. These groups, while definitely therapuetic, have an underlying business and professional development focus. The focus of these groups is to support those who want to explore and creatively re-design the direction of their work and lives in ways that can sustainably spark their joy and bring greater fulfillment and inner well-being. They are also practicing recognizing and letting go of unhealthy ego and come more from the authentic/true self as part of the re-design process. Cindy's current therapist/practitioner group is also earning CME/CE as part of their process group at the Category A CE and full medical CME levels. That is a possibility for new folks entering that group as well.
