Sponsored Group Psychotherapy Sessions

As part of the new ACCMA Clinician Wellness Program, ACCMA will be sponsoring a limited number of small group psychotherapy sessions via Zoom for physicians who may benefit from support in this format. Groups of three to eight physicians will meet for up to six sessions on an ongoing basis. Both physicians and medical residents can take advantage of this program.

The ACCMA Clinician Wellness Program has also developed a list of vetted mental health clinicians who are available for one-on-one sessions with physicians. These consultations are not sponsored by the ACCMA.

If you are interested in participating in the sponsored group sessions, please contact one of the following mental health clinicians and indicate that you would like to participate in the ACCMA Small Group Psychotherapy sessions:

Being a physician means working in a unique, demanding, and ever-changing field. This therapy group is designed to support physicians in managing their stress, identifying and minimizing burn-out, and getting support and feedback from peers thus allowing for more meaningful connections in their lives, both in professional and personal relationships.
