This group is especially well-suited for professionals who want to increase their capacity for intimacy while coping with high visibility and high stress in their careers. Members value a wellness oriented model of growth which is free from the constraints of "medically necessary" psychotherapy linked to insurance protocols. They are especially interested in learning more about their reactions to others when dealing with conflict, competition, loss, and transition. Interpersonal at its core, the group's most challenging and rewarding work occurs through effective feedback to relational events as they occur in the "here and now" personal encounter.

This group will focus on a variety of men's issues including Fathers and Fatherhood; Sex and Sexuality; Money, Work, and Career; Integrity and Purpose; Health and Well-being; and Emotions and Communication, especially among the members within the group.
