SIGs are Special Interest Groups established by HGPS for mental health professionals who share a common interest in a specific area of group psychotherapy. SIGs allow like-minded group psychotherapists to share ideas and strengthen their knowledge through interaction with their colleagues. SIGs vary in size, structure and activity level, but each is open to all interested members.
