Being oneself with others - A three day facilitated person-centred group
Given sufficient willingness to connect, we believe we can:
- explore the diversity and difference represented in our group
- deepen our level of relationship with each other and our own selves
- foster a quality of acceptance based on knowing who we really are
- offer an opportunity to learn and grow not easily available in other contexts
Only when encountering fully the fact of our fundamental difference and uniqueness does a deeply accepting community become possible.
We wish to offer an opportunity for colleagues in counselling/psychotherapy, and allied professions, to come together to learn experientially about being oneself with others through the group work process.
The community will thus serve as a learning laboratory where we might share our concerns, consider aspects of our interactions, our own use of power and control, and any other elements which may arise from the unpredictable turn of events of group process rather than from any imposed agenda.
It is our intention, following this group, to create a learning programme where colleagues can come together for the sole intention of reflecting on and developing their facilitation skills. This programme will begin in 2018 and more details will be available soon.
***N. B. This workshop is a three-day event and single day attendance is not possible.
