Writing for practitioners
This is a one day writing workshop for counsellors, psychotherapists and practitioners working with complex relational know-how. I will present ideas about writing about and from within practice. This will involve some discussion about ethics, about creativity and about the potential for learning. We will play with different writing styles about an episode from your practice and explore how your stories about writing open up or close down possibilities for you.
I have run many writing workshops for reflexive practitioners. It's really my area of specialism these days. My doctoral research was into writing as a relational practice. I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist and mainly do supervision these days and supervise practitioners researching their own practice - which means writing with extra awareness of the extraordinary detail at work in moments of interaction. I have written several peer reviewed papers and edited a couple of books for therapists. Currently, I am editor for a new journal which encourages creative writing for learning purposes for the counselling and psychotherapy fields.
