Jennifer Bullock and Murray Dabby: Teaching “Good Therapists” to Be Better


Atlanta Center for Social Therapy director Murray Dabby and Philadelphia Social Therapy Group director Jennifer Bullock teamed up to lead a national web-conference with about 80  clinicians — all members of the network.

Entitled, Why Group Therapy: Going From Fixing Problems to Creating Possibilities, the conversation touched on issues of development (what is it and how groups create it), building environments for emotional development, and an introduction to Fred Newman and Lois Holzman’s, Lev Vygotsky, Revolutionary Scientist.

Bullock offers Good Therapists some musings on “Emotional Growth in Social Therapy,” here.  In this essay, she considers her journey as a social therapist —  “going from I and me to we” —  and the radical relationality she helped advance alongside Social Therapy founder Fred Newman.
