1st Annual Leaderless Encounter Group NYC
6pm, Thursday February 27th to 4pm, Sunday March 1st
Sponsored by Person-Centered & Experiential Psychotherapies North America
the New York Person-Centered Resource Center
Fundamental to the work of the psychologist Carl Rogers, the
Person-Centered Approach, and other forms of experiential
psychotherapy is the “Encounter Group.” Encounter Groups are a special
kind of group experience with no leader, few rules, and no
predetermined agenda. One of the basic ideals of the Encounter Group
is that members share the responsibilities and privileges of
leadership within the group and each member grows to become an equal
facilitator within the group experience.
To be located in or around New York City, this 1st annual weekend-long
encounter group will be leaderless and is open to mental health
professional, students, academics and other interested professionals.
The size of this group is unlimited and we hope to accommodate every
interested participant. Admission is free but the exact location will
be determined once group size is confirmed. We may ask for donations
to help cover the cost of the meeting space. Housing is
self-determined and should allow for access to New York City or the
surrounding areas. Housing coordination is available if needed.
