Welcome to the Canadian Group Psychotherapy Foundation

The Canadian Group Psychotherapy Foundation (CGPF) promotes education, training, and research in group psychotherapy.

In group psychotherapy, individuals receive psychological support as part of a group, which is led or facilitated by trained health care providers. Research has demonstrated group psychotherapy to be an effective mode of psychological treatment, which also promotes general improvements in self-understanding, personal growth, communication, and relationship quality. Core principles of group psychotherapy are also applied outside of clinical contexts, in educational settings as well as in organizations and communities.

CGPF’s funding model is based exclusively on donations. Donations directly support research, training, and educational opportunities, as well as awards and scholarships for individuals who wish to participate in these opportunities.
