Northeastern Society for Group Psychotherapy Foundation (NSGPF)

“Group psychotherapy and group dynamics were foreign concepts for me. The ability to attend the NSGP Conference, thanks to NSGPF support, improved my understanding and practice.”


Funding for Therapists & Group Leaders

Effectiveness as a group therapist requires specialized knowledge and skills. NSGPF provides scholarships to professionals so they can acquire the additional training needed to enhance their group skills. We offer scholarships to qualified students and professionals to attend the nationally recognized NSGP Training Program, group conferences, and other professional development opportunities. In our commitment to promoting social justice, equitable access to educational opportunities, inclusion, and diversity, NSGPF seeks to provide scholarships and grants to those who work with historically underserved populations.
