Recovery is Possible

Flyer for depth psychology reading group
Flyer for depth psychology reading and discussion group

You’re invited to a free, virtual depth psych reading and discussion group for therapists. Instead of reading books, which require a lot of time and money, I thought we could read freely available essays and interviews, then meet to reflect and discuss them. 

My thought was to start with the three dates listed in the flyer, and for me to take a facilitator role. If the group seems sustainable, I would like to shift to a rotating facilitator model (each meeting someone else can facilitate and pick the material, as long as it’s freely available with a depth focus). 

If you’re a therapist and you’re interested in registering, please fill out the Google event registration form. The Google Meet video link will be sent to the e-mail you provide when you register.

What to know:

  • feel free to share this with your colleagues who may be interested
  • each meeting is capped to 20 people total to allow for enough time/space for sharing
  • if you register but then realize you can’t attend, you can update your rsvp through the link that will be e-mailed to you after completing the form
  • please e-mail me with any questions or feedback at kristen@kristenhornung.com
