Continued development of G-OM recognized similar compounding conditions from later high-impact life-experiences that had consistent PTSD symptom factors identified more in relation to the pivotal experiences than SUDs onset and progression. SUDs appeared to be a co-occurring disorder post or coinciding with conditions stemming from extreme/novel life events.

Treatment for these conditions using G-OM investigates the experiential history of each person in order to identify crucial lifespan episodes and the nature of their impact on the individual. A psychodynamic group process, the Gerwe Orchestration Group Process (OGP) was created for this purpose. OGP helps the collective group understand the consistent dynamics that can occur during . . .
