The Institute for Individual and Group Psychotherapy (IIGP), located on Northwestern Highway in Southfield, is a group of professional psychotherapists who volunteer their time to train young therapists to more effectively help people. With ever increasing emotional problems in families and society, the IIGP is dedicated to maintaining high quality in the professional field of psychotherapy. The IIGP makes advanced professional training available, which can enable patients to live more enriched, content, productive and satisfying lives. Clearly, medications alone do not always solve people’s problems; sometimes talking with a skillful and caring professional is necessary too. The IIGP Annual Benefit Dinner with Live and Silent Auctions allows the group to offer scholarships and maintain its training program. This year’s event on Wednesday, October 17th at the Shriners Silver Garden Events Center, will feature well known and highly respected keynote speaker, Dr. Natan HarPaz.
Dr. HarPaz, a founding member and former Dean of the IIGP is a fellow of the American Group Psychotherapy Association, an Executive Council Member of the American Academy of Psychotherapists, a member of the American and Michigan Psychological Associations and the Michigan Group Psychotherapy Association. He has published and presented widely on group and individual psychotherapy.
