“Hey K, I’ll be there for sure–lookin’ forward to sharing the newer ‘Integrative/individualized’ approach to weekly group therapy, in
1) Irv Yalom’s classic [Theory & Practice of Group Therapy [5th! Edition], evidence-based Healing Principles in interpersonal group therapy;

2) a summary of his In-Patient variations for group therapy; and

3) a very short experiential hypnotic trance to illustrate, among other things, the compelling recent CBT research on how much hypnosis strengthens CT/ CBT outcomes [see for example, the entire most recent issue of Amer Journal of Clinical Hypnosis, 54, #4 guest edited by Assen Alladin,

or Introduction to Clinical Hypnosis : An Evidence Based Approach — Steven Jay Lynn & Irving Kirsch.
