Polly Hart, LCSW, BCD, Sandy Springs 30328, 770-393-1880 x101, Website
All practitioners working for licensure are welcome. The group is case focused, emphasizing pragmatics for those in the first 7 years of clinical practice. It is casual, addressing questions from a broad range of practice settings or even discussing attention getting items from the day’s news. Polly’s book (see website link above) presents the basic curriculum, both nature & nurture, which helps tie what you know to what you do. The group also has down time at the annual “family day” when socializing adds to the mix.
