Psychodynamic skills seminar 2021
EPIC Psychodynamic skills seminars online 2021
EPIC is The Experiential Psychotherapy Initiative Community.
More information and tickets. All seminars are by Zoom.
Our seminars are popular with counsellors, psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists, nurses, health care workers and project workers. The seminars will also be useful for teachers and clergy or others who wish to deepen their understanding of working with individuals and groups.
Our seminar leaders have typically taught on expensive psychotherapy trainings that have become out of reach for most front line staff, who themselves can benefit from the insights and support that dynamic approaches offer. The EPIC venture seeks to address this by offering an affordable and flexible way of learning.
Whether new to psychodynamic ways of working or experienced in the field of psychotherapy, these seminars are aimed at supporting and stimulating ways of understanding healthcare and the field of therapy and therapeutic community. There is a particular emphasis on helping staff develop group work skills.
We have eight sessions per year with meetings on the last Saturday of each month. Our meetings are organised as follows:
- 9-9:30 Coffee
- 9:30 - 11:00 Experiential seminar
- 11:00 - 11:30 Break
- 11:30 - 13:00 Experiential group
Each session costs £40.
Initially, we will meet online via Zoom but we predict moving to Dartford Science and Technology School, towards the middle or end of the year.
You can book all the sessions together or on an ad-hoc basis through Ticket Tailor
