With religion as a precedent and large group formation as an instrument, Dr. Polster will show how we may address the everyday, non-pathological needs of people. A complementary offshoot of these life-long groups is the reciprocal benefits it will share with brief therapy, supplying continuity to the brief therapy experience and individual focus to the large group formations.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To name three activities which are prominent in Life Focus Communities.
  2. To describe how Life Focus Communities represent a combination of brief therapy procedures with long term belonging.
