Specialty Council – The Group Specialty Council approved the revised taxonomy for Group Psychology and Group Psychotherapy at our July meeting. The revised taxonomy has been submitted to the Council of Specialties for review and approval. Once it is approved, it will be distributed. It will also be included in CoS’s taxonomy tools which will assist programs with aligning with specialty standards. The Group Specialty Council has acquired commitments for ongoing financial support from the invested organizations. We are currently establishing the logistics of transferring funds and accounting policies. We will meet again at the end of October. We will also be represented at the annual meeting of the Council of Specialties on November 5 in Washington DC.
