The Sacramento Center for Psychotherapy in California, USA, offers a training program in group counseling for South East Asian professionals. It includes an introductory course (see below) that is equivalent to the American Group Psychotherapy Association (AGPA) core course, fulfilling the requirements for the theoretical part for becoming a Certified Group Psychotherapist (CGP), an experiential process group (4 days of face-to-face workshop + 20 online meetings), an advanced course (60 meetings) and a supervision group (fulfilling the requirement of 75 hours of supervision to become a CGP).The Sacramento Center for Psychotherapy in California is approved by the American Psychological Association (APA) to sponsor Continuing Education.

This course will focus on basic concepts and theories in group therapy, Foundations of Group Therapy, Leadership, Group Dynamics and Group Process and the Change Process in Groups and Teams. It will cover concepts such as the here-and-now, content vs. process, boundaries, resistance, regression, transference and counter-transference in groups. In addition, we will discuss theories of group and team developmental stages, the tasks of the group therapist and different roles of group members. We will briefly touch different approaches to groups and kinds of groups. The group size will be limited to 8 participants to provide a more conducive setting for discussions.
